It used to be that when you bought a computer, it came with what is known as recovery disc‘s. These discs were provided by whichever manufacturer sold your computer. It was a nice way of knowing that if something went wrong on your hard drive, you could wipe it clean using these discs.Now however the companies put the recovery discs on a partition a small area of the hard drive. When you have the time, hopefully sooner than later. Reason being is if you do this after getting a virus on your computer because you don’t have virus protection. You might have to order the discs from the manufacture. You will need 3 DVDs-r, (this will only copy the operating system, not any programs that you have added) to do this go to the start button, all programs, recovery manager and the recovery disk creation progrm for windows 7. Then follow the prompts, each set of instructions will be different.
