With so many of your precious memories and important files stored in digital only form, having a back up is always a good idea. Much the same way, having a way to quickly and easily re-install your OS in the event of a catastrophic meltdown is again, something worth acquiring. Students often get some pretty good tech deals due to the fact manufacturers realize the cash strapped state students often find themselves in. The bone they throw however small is often well received. Microsoft’s latest Windows 7 student upgrade is a pretty good bone at only $30 for the full OS. Only problem is you get a download link without anyway to make a backup disc in case of an OS stroke. Transferring the downloaded file to a disc for backup/restore purposes can’t be that hard can it?

Nope! Many users should be able to handle this one as it’s about as bare bones as it’ll get — a mere three step process.

  1. One command line entry
  2. One program download
  3. Copy file to CD

See, an easy three step process. Hit up The Download Squad for your how-to.
