Hello,
I got a new laptop and it's full of crappy software, I'm lazy so I don't want to take the time to uninstall it. So I just want to do a clean install of windows, but the laptop didn't come with a recovery disk.
So my question is, how do I make a recovery disc?
Thanks advance.

Unfortunately, new computers do not come with recovery discs. The backup is created from your current Windows and software configuration. Basically, like an all inclusive system restore.

You will want to uninstall all of your junkware prior to doing your backup.

Your PC probably has an app bundled to make your recovery discs, problem is it will make it with all the bloatware your to lazy to uninstall.

You could clone to the SSD.
