I have an Acer aspire 7520 Laptop that has Vista Home Premium installed.The Operating System was already installed when purchased new.I contacted Acer at the time about the lack of disks with the Laptop and was told that no company supplies O/P system discs any longer. Also, as the hard disk is partioned, any virus etc cannot corrupt the operating system.My problem is,can i transfer the contents of the hard disk to say an external hard disc so at a later date if i need be it can be reloaded?.If this is possible can someone tell me how to do this? I have various numbers on the base and with paperwork which i believe is required to authorise the copy.Also I have read that sometimes microsoft will not authorise this even with the correct numbers for the laptop as their equipment might recognise this as a new computer because of a new hard disc?Any help would be greatly received.
