I have just purchased a new laptop. It comes with the operating system cd and also the driver and utilities cd. I created a backup straight away using the backup programme(not on to a dvd but on the hard drive. Is there anything else I need to do or think about, also the backup I created does it back up files and photo's etc.

thanks

"I created a backup straight away using the backup programme"

A backup of what?

I deleted various bits of software that I do not want, went to the backup programme and just pressed backup,to be honest not sure what it has backed up.

"to be honest not sure what it has backed up"

A rather pointless exercise, then, I suggest - particularly as you backed up to the HDD.

The whole point of a backup is to back up to an external source in case the HDD fails.
