Win8 system backup

2012-12-08, 17:47 PM

I bought a K430 last week and I am trying to back up my windows system in case of a hard drive failure.


I cannot find a way to do this to DVD. I have asked PC World, Microsoft, and Lenovo support. But no luck.


It lets me produce a one DVD repair disc, but if I try to backup the system in demands a USB and says it will need at least 16 KGB free space.

If I use the Win 7 recovery it tries to back up over 220 Gb.


Does anyone know how I can back up the system to 3 or 4 DVDs as it is meant to be done.


Many thanks in advance

hey @sabino check it out: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Back-up-your-programs-system-settings-and-files 


pay atention for what you want to backup, because if you're trying to backup the full file system, expect to be something huge....
