What if your Windows 7 becomes corrupt and fails to boot? Most laptops and PCs today come with Windows pre-installed and the manufacturers sometimes don’t include Windows installation disc.
This is where Recovery Disk come into play. It is recommended that users create a recovery disk as soon as possible and keep it in a safe location. In case your Windows 7/8 fails to boot, the recovery disk can help fix the problem.
To create a recovery disk in Windows 7, go through the following steps:
Click Start Orb and go to Control Panel. Here, select Back up your computer under the System and Security option.
From the left sidebar, select Create a system repair disk. Finally select your CD-R/RW or DVD-R/RW drive from the new dialog window and hit Create Disc.
It will start creating a disc instantly. Once complete, hit OK, label it, and save the disk in a safe location.
The total file size of the recovery disk is 164MB which means you can burn it to a CD instead of DVD.
In case you forgot to create a recovery disk and your Windows 7 fails to boot, you can ask your friend or co-worker to create you one. Please note that if you are using Windows 7 64-bit then the recovery disk must be made from same version of OS, using a recovery disk from 32-bit is not recommended and vice versa.
