Toshiba will supply only the original recovery media which restores the hard disk to its original out-of-the-box contents.

 

But you can create your own recovery image. That is, you can create a recovery image of the current state of the disk at any time. (We do this every day for every computer for backup.)  You can create DVDs if you like, but it's best written to an external drive rather than to discs.

 

Open Windows 7 File Recovery (sdclt.exe) and click Create a system image.

 

          

 

 

 

Be sure to create a System Repair Disc so you can access the image for a restore. Open Windows 7 File Recovery (sdclt.exe) and click Create a system repair disc. (If you prefer this on a flash drive, you can do that too.)
