Crap! I am using CD-Rs. If it took you 4 with DVD then it would take what? ~30 CD-Rs!

 

Is that right?

Re: 11 recovery disks?!!?

well not all the DVD are filled up. The first recovery disc is just a rescue and recovery bootup environment. And the last discs is usually the drivers and softwares, which don't really take up all the 4.7 gig capacity.
