    Is thee any way without using a lot of disks ,or could I use a DVD disk that is much more capable to handle larger files . . or go outside the box to cloud or some free storage site to do this , I just want to make sure that if anything should happen to my computer I can restore it , all I have now is restore to last good know date . I don't think I have a restore a partition , I don't have a restore disk that comes with it , I have windows 7 professional with IE11 a HP tower computer . and my flash drive is only 8 GB , any answer's simple and easy please , thanks ?

    You should have a Recovery partition on an HP OEM machine Suzonka and the tools to make Recovery disks should be in your All Programs Menu.

    With Windows 7 you may need at least 3 DVD's or you could choose to back up to an external hard drive.

    Hi suzonka. You can also create a Windows 7 DVD that you can use to repair your system in case something happens to your installation.

    To do this you will need to create a Windows 7 DVD and you can find Windows 7 SP1 ISO files here, Official Windows7SP1 ISO Image Downloads.

    Once you have downloaded the ISO file you want, download and run the portable version of Active ISO Burner and burn the Windows 7 ISO file to a DVD.
