    I have a new Acer 5551 laptop (Windows 7 OS)

    I want to create back up discs so that if the hard drive fails I can replace the hard drive and use the discs to restore it to the way it is now (same drivers, operating system etc.).

    Please could you tell me what back up system I should use (there appears to be at least two Acer backup and Windows 7).


    Thanks in advance.

    Win7 has an imaging program in Control Panel/Backup. This will restore the OS and any programs.
    The recovery disks usually do the same, so I'd say use both.
    Update them occasionally.
    There is also a backup program in Control Panel you can use to keep your files backed outside of regular imaging or recovery disk creation.
