Hello all. In the old days i'd have windows installation on disk. Now it's all installed on laptop with office. Can anyone tell me how i can make an installation disk of windows and office in case i need to reformat the hard drive etc?

Which make and model of laptop? There is usually a utility which allows you to create your own recovery disks.
Annoyingly not all laptops come with a backup so usually the onus is on you to make your own hence this thread

My method is having 2 partitions C drive and D drive, and I use the D drive to store the backup of C using "Acronis", once installed run the program that creates a bootable CD, once you boot up the disk Acronis will now start and thats were you select C drive to be backed up and saved to your D drive, you can either pay for this software or torrent it, choice is yours!

regarding having a copy of windows on a disk, either buy if from a shop so you have an original disk or torrent it

so its that old chestnut "torrent or pay"

hope that helps
