Why creating a system recovery disc is important.

You may be the kind of person who hasn’t bothered to create a system recovery disc yet – or you may not know what a system recovery disc is.

A system recovery disc can recover your operating system if anything should happen to your PC.

For example – Say one day you turned on your computer, and you got a message saying: Missing Operating System.

If you haven’t created a system recovery disc and this happens, basically you’re stuck. You will most probably have to pay to get your PC fixed.

But, if you have created a system recovery disc, then it’s good news for you! All you do is pop the disc in and restart your PC.

The disc will do the rest.

If you have a Toshiba computer, then we would suggest using the TOSHIBA Recovery Media Creator program. You can usually find this on all toshiba laptops by going to:

Start Menu>Programs>TOSHIBA>TOSHIBA Media Recovery Creator.
