Burn backup disc

Using the Burn Disc page of Acer eRecovery Management, you can burn the 
factory default image, a user backup image, the current system configuration, 
or an application backup image to CD or DVD.
1

Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the 
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.

2

Switch to the Burn Disc page by selecting the Burn Disc button.

3

Select the type of backup (factory default, user, current system, 
application) you would like to burn to disc. Choosing to burn a user backup 
will burn your most recently created backup image to disc.

4

Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

Note: Create a factory default image when you want to burn a 
bootable disc that contains your computer's entire operating 
system as it was delivered to you from the factory. If you wish to 
have a disc that will allow you to browse the contents and install 
selected drivers and applications, create an application backup 
image instead — this disc will not be bootable.

Restore and recovery

The restore and recovery features allow you to restore or recover the system 
from a factory default image, from a user created image, or from previously 
created CD and DVD backups. You can also reinstall applications and drivers for 
your Acer system.

previously created CD/DVD or reinstall applications and drivers.
