    I have a new ACER Aspire One D150.It has no dvd/cd burner. it keeps asking to make recovery disks. So...how can I
    1.turn off this pop up request
    2. be certain I have a backup of factory settings (i think I saw there is a recovery image in the BIOS set up)

    Not many solutions here :(

    I just worked out how to do it though, assuming you have another computer with a cd/dvd burner that you can copy files to, from the Acer.

    You need to download a tool called Virtual CD. There is a free months trial - you only need it long enough to create your images. It will create a file on the c-drive that eRecovery will see as a virtual CD or DVD writer. When the file has been burnt you need to tell Virtual CD to insert the created file, in order for eRecovery to "verify" the image. You then copy the image files to your other machine and have Virtual CD write it to your CD/DVD drive.

    I tried other similiar tools but could not get them to work with eRecovery.

    How about using Titan Backup. I got it for free through the Windows Secrets web site. Save the file locally and copy it to a thumbdrive to be safe.....
