Under My Computer, C:/ drive, I right click to Properties, Tools and then to Back Up Now. I went through this up to the point where it selects a backup device. My system came with a factory-installed CD WRiter / DVD-ROM. The device DOES NOT appear. Is the manufaturer so worried about cash flow that they disable my ability to make my own backup disks, so I have to pay them for the recovery/backup disks??? I'm tired of calling them because everything seems to be a software problem which is not covered by ANY warranty! I have a 14GB file waiting to be backed up to DVD. Is there a way I can finish my backup and create my recovery disks? Many thanks. :mad:

My System : [email protected]#% Laptop with CoreDuo, 1 Gb RAM, 60 Gb HD, Windows XP Pro.

For one thing I do not understand what make and model a [email protected]#% is. SO what is the make and model of your computer ?

There is usually a good reason for no recovery disk with a computer and usually a good way to make one or send you to find out how to make recovery cd.

Since your word above starts with a D we will assume it is a Dell

How Do I Create a CD Containing My Operating System with the Dell™ OS Recovery Utility?

I do not have the functions described in the above link. Maybe they changed this so that you have to call them. Thanks tho.

OK then this is a Dell, I would suggest calling Dell tech support for help in this area and also you might be able to get a set of original boot disk software for your computer.
