"Microsoft reminds that consumers should be provided with backup discs"
What a laugh!
You try getting a system back up disc from virtually every computer supplier from the smallest to the likes of Dell
You'll be told it ain't gonna happen. Not unless you....pay a fee, often large, or...buy a retail copy (!)
And if you write to Microsoft to complain, as I did some years ago, you'll be told they don't encourage (that means they actively discourage) the issue of backup discs in their efforts to combat piracy. Eventually, after much to and fro, they gave me a retail copy on a one off basis but only after perusing the list of software I had bought retail and registered with them over the years
That policy may, or may not, have changed, but the system remains totally unhelpful to computer buyers generally
