Select Create System Recovery Discs to continue.

Requires the user to insert a recordable media. Upon initiating this process, it is important to have uninterruptible power supply.
Recordable media required for this process is either a DVD or Blu-ray disc. CD or DVR -RW are not allowed.

I apologize that I am not expressing myself correctly.

I know how to use the software on my windows 7 computer.

I don't have the software that I paid for on my laptop.

How do I install the backup software that has been loaded on my win 7 computer to the win XP computer.

Which file must I copy over to do the installation?

The software is OEM and hence licensed for 1 computer only. You cannot install Windows 7 on your Laptop using Dell DataSafe and have to purchase a separate license of Windows 7 for it.
