How to Recover your Laptop?

How to Recover your Laptop? Many new user find difficulty in recovering their laptop, but before moving to that one should know the difference between “recover” and “restore”. The terms “recover” and “restore” both refer to retrieving files from a backup device, such as a hard disk, external hard drive or other storage media. However, recovering files typically refers to relieve or save one or more files, while a restore refers to replacing a complete system or hard drive from a full system backup.
