I just bought an HP G72-B66US laptop. This is the first time I will be using Windows 7. I know we are not given back up CD's any longer in case of a crash. Is it easy to create one for someone who is not too computer savvy but is not stupid either? :D

so do i have to do the backup and then the repair disc? I would back up the c drive on the new computer and then do the disc. I didn't know I had to do both, so thank you. I thought I just had to do the create repair disc. Aye yi yi, a brand new computer and it's confusing.

I created my repair disc, but I think I messed up the back up of files. I ended up with them on discs instead of my E drive. I can't go back and put it on my E drive now.

I did the back up only it ended up on dvd's instead of my E drive and when I go back to do it on my E drive it will only offer me the option of the DVD's so I guess I have to live with it.
