Creating the system recovery disks

For the system recovery disk, you go to the ‘Start’ button and then select ‘Accessories’. Click on the ‘System tools’ icon and then on the ‘Automated Recovery Wizard’. Before hitting on ‘Next’, insert a CD on your Acer Aspire® and then proceed. You might need several disks to fully create the factory settings of your laptop.
