Why did my Dell System not come with Disks?

Dell prides itself on listening to its customers! Dell is committed to delivering the best products and solutions as well as maintaining its commitment to the environment. We recognize that storing piles of disks and locating them when in need can be time consuming and decrease productivity in your organization or livelihood. We have come out with two backup and recovery software products, with these products you can backup and restore your computers data to a Disk or USB Memory Key at your discretion. You can also restore your system to the factory image from the hard drive or in some cases the Disk or USB Memory Key you have made using this software.
