Creating Recovery Disks

Dear Computer Lady,

Thank you for all of your help over the years!
I bought a Sony Vaio E Series last August and did not make recovery discs. Can I still make them now?

What kind of “discs” should I use and how do I do this??

Thank you, Joanne

Dear Joanne,

Yes, you should still be able to make your recovery disks.

You will probably need several DVD-R disks. If you purchase a pack of 10, you should have plenty, most recovery disk sets use between 3 and 6 disks.

Once you have your disks, you will need to search in your programs menu for the program to make your disks. If you search for the word, “Recovery” you should be able to find it.

Just click on the start button, then type the word, Recovery in the search box. Any programs with the word, Recovery in the name will be displayed. Click on the Recovery disk creator program (the name will be different for different computer manufacturers)

Once you find the recovery disk creating program, follow the directions to create your disks.
