Why do computer manufacturers not put a windows back up disc in with their computers, or do they. Last laptop didnt have a disc,and neither has this one.

Ahh thanks H, Last time I had a problem (a few years ago) with windows I was charged £80 to have it re installed. Just want to avoid this happening again. TA

Good morning Mac. Another question I,m afraid. Once I have done the back up disc for windows 8 on the other laptop can I use that disc to install windows 8 on this laptop I,m using at present,Ta
