    I still have the original Windows 7 Recovery Discs torrent links and they still appear to be active. However they are no longer hosted by NeoSmart because Microsoft decided the free disk that anyone can create for free should be sold. Nice going Microsoft for double charging your customers yet again. If I can help anyone recover their system for free, I will and without regrets. If it wasn't for the fact that anyone can create Recovery Disk from within Windows, I would feel differently about Microsoft charging for these downloads. NeoSmart was perfectly willing to host these Recovery Discs for free.

    Take my advice and don't pay a dime, find a friend and use their machine to create these Recovery Discs that you need. If you type "Create" in the Start Menu search box, you should see the first link being "Create a System Repair Disc". There is four different disk and you will need the one designed for your machine. Windows will only create the disk that would recover your OS, so you will need to find a machine with the same OS and Bit Version .
    • Windows Vista 32-Bit Recovery Disk
    • Windows Vista 64-Bit Recovery Disk
    • Windows 7 32-Bit Recovery Disk
    • Windows 7 64-Bit Recovery Disk
