Creating recovery disk
To begin with, you need to determine how much space would be required by your system recovery files. Once you know this click on ‘Start’, then ‘All Programs’, then ‘My Toshiba’ and finally ‘Recovery Media Creator’. A ‘Recovery Media Creator’ screen will open up asking you to choose the location for storing your files. Either you can choose USB or DVD. You cannot store the recovery files on your computer itself. Once you choose DVD/USB, the system will let you know how many DVDs will be required to contain the recovery files or the storage space on USB. After this insert DVD/USB in your system depending upon the option that you have chosen and then click ‘Create’. Follow the on-screen instructions and the system will then start creating recovery files for you.
Things to do while creating recovery disk
Always number or name your DVDs after they have been created so that you can easily figure out the content of each DVD. Also this will prevent you or anyone else from rewriting it, which otherwise can erase your recovery files. It is also wise to check if the recovery DVDs have been burnt properly or not.
Firstly, do not create recovery disks if there are viruses and spywares on your computer. Clean your system before attempting a recovery file creation. Secondly, do not let the DVDs get scratches or any kind of damage or else it will render the DVD useless.
