Your recovery disc will contain all the essential drivers and the Operating System as well. Creating a backup of all files is very important for any computer user, and this is true for Toshiba Satellite T100 users as well. When you create a system recovery disc, first of all clean the software, files and folders on the hard drive and remove all the unnecessary extensions, folders, and software that are not in use. If you have a CD drive, Rescue and Recovery can be used to create a personalized backup on CDs or DVDs, that include all of your added software, setting changes and data files. You can use this recovery disc in the future, in case you need to change any settings of your Toshiba Satellite T100. Threats from spyware, malware and Trojans have become a very common issue and can create a situation wherein, you will have to restore your system.
Some tips to keep in mind when you create a recovery disc for your Toshiba Satellite T100:
- Creating a recovery disc
- Use quality media
- Ensure power supply
Creating recovery disc
Start your system and login to the administrator account. Insert a blank CD or DVD into the appropriate optical drive. Create a folder on the desktop to place all of your important files. Copy the important files from their current locations to either the temporary folder you created or by simply right clicking on them and selecting the ‘Send To’ option followed by the drive letter of the optical drive.
Use quality media
One of the most important things that you need to keep in mind is that the recovery disc you are going to create is also for future use. Hence, it is important that the media you use, such as CDs or DVDs, are of good quality. Else, you might not be able to use the data stored on the recovery disc after the recovery process takes place.
The creation of recovery discs is a lengthy process. You need to be careful not to shut down or unplug the power supply to your Toshiba Satellite T100 when the restoration process is taking place. If your system shuts down accidentally, the creation of the recovery disc will be left incomplete or in some cases the process will be stop and nothing will be stored on your CD.
