Creating a recovery disc in the Samsung® R730
Tips and ways of creating a recovery disc in the Samsung R730
Creating a backup of all the files is very essential for any computer user and this is true for Samsung R730 users as well. Threats from spyware, malware and Trojans can create a situation, wherein you will have to restore your system. The recovery disc will contain the Operating System and all its critical drivers. Before you create a recovery disc, you need to clean the files, folders and programs from the hard drive and delete all the unnecessary extensions, folders and software that you no longer use. Transfer all the important data onto an external device such as a CD or DVD or any other removable media. The Rescue and Recovery option can be used to create a personalized backup on CDs or DVDs, which includes all of your added software, user preferred settings and program files.
Some tips to keep in mind when you create a recovery disc for your Samsung R730:
- Use quality media
- Sufficient power
- Creating recovery disc
Use quality media
One of the most important things that you need to remember is the media you use, such as CDs or DVDs are of good quality because the recovery disc you are going to create is also for future use. If the media is not of good quality, you might not be able to recover the data stored on the recovery disc during the recovery process.
The creation of recovery discs is a lengthy and time consuming process. You should not shut down or unplug the power supply to your Samsung R730 system when the restoration process is taking place. If the power fails or your system shuts down, the creation of the recovery disc will be incomplete. In such cases, the process will stop and nothing will be saved on your CD.
Start your system and login to the system administrator account. Place a blank CD or DVD in the correct disk drive. Write all the files you wish to keep for later use. Create a folder on your desktop to place all your important files in. Copy important files from their current locations to either the temporary folder you created on your desktop, or by simply right clicking on them and selecting the ‘Send to’ option followed by the drive letter of the disk drive.
