    I need to make the recovery disks for my Vista machine. I don't want any of the pictures, music, ect. on the disks; the OS only. Thanks. I've searched for it but I read that when you create a recovery disk it backs up all the data too.

    It is a tower made by Gateway. I'll get more detailed info about it when I'm on it next.

    With companies like acer, HP. They will give you the option to make recovery media - This means it will allow you to recover the system back to it's Out of Box condition without any Data, like mp3s photos etc.

    I am not 100 percent sure about Gate Way systems.
