Hi Sylbourn,

You will need to back up the data on an external hardrive or on Discs prior to performing system recovery.
System Recovery means all your data except for the factory shipped softwares will be deleted, hence a backup
is necessary. Go through this link for help on backing up data,

Here is a weblink on performing system recovery...
