computer. You may be prompted for your permission or password for tasks such as installing
software, running utilities, or changing Windows settings. Refer to Help and Support for more
information.
Backing up your information
Recovery after a system failure is as good as your most recent backup. You should create system
repair discs (select models only) by using the installed optical drive (select models only) or an
optional external optical drive, and your initial backup immediately after software setup. As you add
new software and data files, you should continue to back up your system on a regular basis to
maintain a reasonably current backup. The system repair discs (select models only) are used to start
up (boot) the computer and repair the operating system in case of system instability or failure. Your
initial and subsequent backups allow you to restore your data and settings if a failure occurs.
You can back up your information to an optional external hard drive, a network drive, or discs.
