Question Unable to create system recovery discs for Toshiba Satellite L505D-LS5007 laptop computer.

Jan 6, 2023
I was given a Toshiba Satellite L505D-LS5007 laptop computer. I have been trying to create a system recovery disc, but the system will not allow it. I have tried saving to DVD, CD, flash drive, and an external hard drive to no avail. What can I do? Do I need to order recovery discs from Toshiba? If so, how can I contact the company? I have tried looking for Toshiba on the internet but became confused when I finally found what I thought was their website because it couldn't pull up info on the laptop.
Get an external drive to store the files, and do a backup to image using a software like Macrium Reflect. You will need to make a bootable USB disk for Macrium to run off for best results, boot off that, then clone the disk in the laptop to an image file on the external drive.
