Creating a recovery disc in the Samsung® P530
How do you create a recovery disc in the Samsung P530?
Keeping a backup of files has become very essential for any computer user and this is true for Samsung P530 users as well. Threats from spyware, malware and Trojans can create a situation wherein you will have to restore your system to a previous state. The recovery disc will contain the Operating System and all the essential drivers. Before you create a recovery disc, clean the files, folders and applications on the hard drives and delete all the unnecessary extensions, folders and software that you no longer use. Copy all the important data to a separate device such as a CD or DVD. If you have a disk drive, Rescue and Recovery can be used to create a customized backup on CDs or DVDs, which includes all of your added software, user preferred setting changes and software files.
Some tips to keep in mind when you create a recovery disc for your Samsung P530 system:
- Recovery disk
- Use quality media
- Do not interrupt the process
Start your Samsung P530 and login to the system administrator account. Place a blank CD or DVD into the appropriate optical drive. Copy important files from their current locations to either a temporary folder on your desktop or by simply right clicking on them and selecting the ‘Send to’ option followed by the drive letter of the optical drive. Write all the files to the CD you wish to keep for their later transfer to the disk drive.
Use quality media
One of the most important things that you need to remember is that the recovery disc you are going to create is also for future use. Hence, it is important that the media you use, such as CDs or DVDs, is of high quality. Else, you might not be able to recover your data stored on the recovery disc during the recovery process.
The recovery disc creation process for your Samsung P530 might be time consuming. Users are warned not to interrupt the recovery disc creation process, as doing so would corrupt the recovery disc and make it useless. If the power fails or your system shuts down, the creation of the recovery disc would be incomplete. You should not shut down or disconnect the power supply to your Samsung P530 when the restoration process is taking place.
