hello everybody.. have you eaten??

Last year, i got the installer of windows 7 (in CD form) and its CD-Keys from my university. So i installed windows 7 in my laptop successfully to replace the slow Vista.

long story short.

Just now i was asking myself, can i do the Acer eRecover Management to backup my Windows 7 like what i did to my Windows Vista?. Because now i still have 3 Backup DVDs of my Windows Vista which i made it from eRecovery. Oh forgot to tell, i am using Acer Aspire 4925.

Two years ago, when i still used a Vista, the laptop had a problem! So on rebooting, i just insert that 3 Backup DVDs of Vista to reformat my laptop.

So what happen if one day this Windows 7 got a problem, i had no choiche other than reformat/reinstall Windows 7, how could i do that??? Right now i only have the Installer CD but the CD-Keys i have no more.

So the big question here : How to do the backup CD of my Windows 7? so next time i can just insert those CDs if something bad happen to my windows 7.

Thank you.

Did the school give you a full retail version of Windows 7? If so, the Acer backup capability would be gone.

The school should have records of the keycode they gave to you. You can try these apps to recover the keycode -
