Nearly new Win 8 laptop in the office. From time to time it has suggested I create recovery disks. I finally managed to buy some DVD-R disks (that involved driving more than 100 miles). What to do instead of waiting for the next prompt?
I tried Control Panel -> Recovery -> Create Recovery Drive
It then asks Copy Recovery Partition? If yes, it offers only the option of creating a recovery drive (using a flash drive of at least 16 GB capacity). If no, you have the option of creating disks instead ... but it created only a single disk, using only about 1/3 the capacity of the disk (to judge by the visible writing trace). I had been given to understand that "recovery disks" would require 3 to 5 disks. So is this not the same thing as the recovery disk set that would be created if I accepted the prompt? and if so, how to generate that prompt without waiting (an unknown number of days) before it appears again?
