    Oh [insert high-pitched beeping .wav file here]!

    My computer has just crashed, and i just found out that i have lost the Toshiba Recovery CD. Apparently, according to my dad's computer friend, there are 'some sites' that provide downloads of a "boot file" that is able to recover the Windows Operating system. i honestly think that is just bogus. Any helpful hints?
    thanks

    The recovery CD will not recover any files that were originally on the hard drive, it will just overwrite everything with a fresh copy of Windows. You can request these CDs directly from Toshiba.
