Apparantly new PC's do not come with back up discs for XP now. Is this correct & if so how do you make ya own?
PC purchased was Packard Bell. Not listed on side of box.

That you will get a restore disk, this will restore your operating system to its original state, in case of a crash!

This is an area of contention with many people I think.

Contact Packard Bell and ask where your Restore Disks are and see what they have to say, the majority of new computers come with restore Disks.

Start, right click My Computer, Manage, Disk Management. You should see Recovery on a seperate partition.
