on my old PC there was a link to Create a system restore CD from the Start menu (only one copy could be made)
was this an additional program or can anyone point me to the program??

It was an additional program installed by the computer manufacturer. The only way to create a 'restore disk' if you don't have that option or a disk, is to Ghost the installation using a Program like Symantec Ghost, or, Acronis True Image.

On my laptop, in System Tools, there is still a link to make a Recovery disc, even though I've already made one. Advent, XP Media Centre.

if you right click on link and go to properties where does the link point??

I'll fire it up.

It's in Programs, System Recovery, Recovery Media Centre.

Properties: C:\\WINDOWS\CREATOR\CD Creator.exe.

Mmmm, if I launch it I get '...already created. You are not allowed to make another'.

Worth a try, though.
