Depends on your vendor or maker, see if there is a *back-up* procedure that will make restore or recovery CDs. Read the manual or visit thier support website for such instructions and USUALLY this is a one time shot. Otherwise, contact the maker now and stress the need for restore/recovery disks. This may involve a small cost or none, exclduing S/H fee if recent purchase.

FYI - Don't type in capitals, it expresses *loud talking/shouting* or emphessis in computer lingo.

Most come with an option to make the recovery CDs.

If not (no make/model) you'll look up ACRONIS.
