Creating Recovery Discs
PC Recovery Disc Creator creates a set of recovery CDs or DVDs
for the computer. Use recovery discs to restore the operating
system and software programs to factory settings, in case of
system failure or instability.
Handle these discs carefully and keep them in a safe place. The
software allows the creation of only one set of recovery discs.
Note the following guidelines before creating recovery discs:
You will need high quality CD-R, DVD-R, or DVD+R media
DVD±RW/R and double-layer DVD±RW are not compatible
with the PC Recovery Disc Creator software.
The computer must be connected to AC power during this
Only one set of recovery discs can be created per computer.
