"could I do that as if I have the CD"

Probably not. However, there are some computer systems that have the
essential Windows installation files on their harddisks. If you have
one of these, you could reinstall into a new empty folder.

If you reformat the harddisk, you will, of course, delete everything
that is on the harddisk including any Windows files.

You may be able to buy Windows 95 via the Internet for a very low
price. If you do this, be sure that you get the Product ID code.

There are backup programs that allow you to take an image of your hard
drive. The problem would be the capacity of the CD. Also, you would have to
ensure that you could re-install an operating system (eg DOS) that would
allow you to retrieve the image from wherever you had saved it.

Why not just buy a W95 CD on eBay?
