There are times when you lose data or find your system won't start and then you realise you have no system recovery software, no boot CD and no way of repairing your computer. You then waste precious time at work without a computer or trying to solve the problem. It might be as quick to wipe Windows and re-install, but then you lose your fonts, system preferences and other personal data. The answer is to pre-install some recovery software that can sit dormant on your machine, until you have reason to utilitise the resource.
