Creating a recovery disk in the Dell® XPS M1330

The Dell XPS M1330 is sure to be the crown jewel among your collection of electronic gadgets. It is a premium segment computer system dedicated to heavy gaming, video editing and special effects processing. The Dell XPS M1330 is one of the sleekest and shiniest products by Dell that is backed by an incredible amount of processing power and rarely needs any maintenance. However, in rare cases of hard drive failures, you need to be able to take care of this system. This article outlines the tips to create recovery disks.

We will be discussing the following reasons:

  • What Is A Recovery Disk?
  • How to Create A Recovery Disk?
  • Tips to Avoid Problems

What Is A Recovery Disk?

A recovery disk is a generally an optical disk that contains a backup of original factory settings or a selected restore point configuration of your computer. The original equipment manufacturer or you may configure this as an end-user. It is generally bundled with most computers to facilitate you to wipe put and then restore the operating system and pre-loaded configurations and software. Providing recovery CD-ROMs previously did this. Dell is now utilizing this hard drive disk to store the recovery data because disk based recovery is faster than the disc based recovery since the data is directly on the hard drive and no disc swapping is needed.

How to Create A Recovery Disk?

Creation of a Windows® XP® based System Recovery Disk is generally easy. All you need to do is simply activate the backup program options under system tools and then directly proceed to backup and restore your media and files to optical disks. You may also use the Automated System Recovery Wizard (ASR) option under the Backup program to make it even easier. The ASR wizard provides an option to create a two-pronged backup of your Dell XPS M1330 using a CD or any other media of your choice to backup system settings and configurations. What this effectively means is that all of the Windows® files, Registry settings, all programs and configurations on your Dell XPS M1330 can be fully recovered after a system crash or an intended format.

Tips to Avoid Problems

To avoid problems such as a hard-disk failure, it makes sense to keep a time-based backup of the hard drive and refresh the backup as policy depending upon the sensitivity of your backup needs. Also, insist on procuring a recovery disk from Dell. If the disk is not bundled, you can approach a professional technical support program to prepare one for you. The importance of procuring and keeping the recovery disc cannot be understated in the context of losing a recovery disk. Another problem with the recovery disk (if created on hard disk itself) is that it actually sits dormant and hogs space on a hard disk drive, even though you have a separate recovery option. The only advantage is that it takes less time to recover, which is not fully justified. You may opt for deleting the recovery disk and reclaim the space once you have a recovery disk. However, this is an extremely complicated task and should be done by a professional.
