Vaio VGN-S460 How can I create a recovery media kit for my laptop

\015 XP home editionI think there is a partitioned area with the OSI chatted with Sony and they told me to create a recovery media kit using the wizard but I can't find the recovery wizard. I'm not an advanced user- cannot use dos unless someone walks me through it (I take direction well).Thanks\015

Answers :

Hi Francine , no need to go to dos.

It's under Start > Help and Support. Scroll down and you'll see the recovery program hyperlink.

Here are instructions from their website. Interesting that they dont tell you HOW to launch the recovery wizard. Very helpful


Hope this helps.

Oh BTW , make sure you back up your data before using these recovery disks as they will overwrite your data.
