    I've just bought a 250GB hard-drive with a USB connection, and successfully
    backed up all my data using the Windows Backup programme. The backup wizard
    then tried to send details about the hard-drive configuration to make a
    recovery disk on a floppy disk. As my laptop doesn't have a floppy drive, I
    had a blank CD ready, but the program merely terminated saying it failed to
    make the recovery disk.Could anyone please tell me whether it is possible to
    make an ASR recovery CD, as I guess this is needed to re-start a failed
    computer, and then access the backup I've made. TIA.
