Hello, I wanted to double check on the making of a recovery disk for a friends windows 7 64-bit laptop.
I know you can go into Control Panel/System and Security/Backup and Restore.
There are two options to choose from:
1) Create a system image
2) Create a system repair disk
My question is to verify that you should make both disks.Create a system repair disk
gives you the recovery console items and Create a system image
gives you an act of a Windows Installation CD, should you need to do a format and complete fresh install of Windows?
