Windows 7 provides the System Restore feature with considerable improvements. This feature functions by creating restore points in your system. In times of troubles, your system could be restored to any of the previously created points. Windows 7 enables you to create multiple restore points. The System Restore feature can be accessed in the ‘Start ‘menu by selecting ‘Accessories’ from ‘All Programs’.
Toshiba Satellite U500 provides a Recovery CD at the time of purchase of your new laptop. This Recovery CD is equipped with the original factory configuration of your laptop. It, thus, helps in restoring the original Windows 7 Operating System back to its factory settings. Alternatively, you also have provisions to create a recovery disk which could contain updated features of your Operating System. Using the Recovery CD restores the complete settings in your laptop to its factory values.
Though the System Restore feature provides you information regarding the files which would be deleted and retained, it is desirable to backup all the important information before performing the restoration. The data could be saved to any storage media or even to a storage network. The Recovery CD could be used to restore your Windows 7 installation only if it is the original Operating System that came with your laptop.
