That is only for restoring your computer to factory. If you want an actual replication of your whole hard drive you will need some software to replicate it. Do you know what regedit is? have you used it? if not i would recommend the following software. You will have to pay for it. http://www.partitionwizard.com/ ( I do not promote any specific software for money or gain anything. This is my recommendation from experience. There are plenty of other software that you can use to do the same thing if you want to search them out) . It will allow you to copy your current disk to usb external disk as a backup. It's easy to use and the safest bet. If you are more advanced user there are other free software. But you have to trouble the issues on your own if i direct you to it.
