    Default How to make a second set of Rescue Disk in Windows 8

    Hi
    I have a hp laptop with windows 8 the is used I was trying to make a set of rescue disk but it will only let you make one set. I have been trying to get the set of rescue disk from the person that I bought the hp laptop from. Keep getting the runaround from him. Does anyone know how to make a Second set rescue disk? Thank you for any help on this.

    I note on this HP page, it clearly says (with their bold added),
    HP recovery software allows you to make only one recovery backup.
    I suspect that is due to licensing agreements.

    So I suggest you use Windows Backup, or perhaps Acronis or another program to make a backup image of your disk. The advantage there is it will be a current backup. Otherwise the HP recovery disk will take you all the way back to when the machine was new.
