We have a Acer Extensa 5420 laptop with Windows Vista installed. I have created a backup/restore point. I was wondering what the difference between the four options for creating backup disks?
The difference between:
Create factory default disc
Create user backup disc
Create current system configuration backup disc
Create driver and application backup disc
I have read the help section in the eRecovery Management application and a manual I found online but I still don't understand the difference between these options, especially between Create user backup disc and Create current system configuration backup disc.
My goals are to have a full backup of the laptop as it currently is including Windows Vista and all files.
I am still used to older operating systems where you had a disk to reload the OS after a format or if serious problems occured. Am I able to create just a Windows Vista disk? Also, if I am able to create a disk, how do you reload Windows Vista when we don't have any type of code to enter? Second question having to deal with a Windows Vista reload disk is it possible to use this disk if you were to install this on a new hardrive, say for example we upgrade to a larger hardrive on the laptop?
Sorry for all the questions I just have not been able to find any further details on what the backup disc options actually do and have never owned a operating system that didn't have a disk.
