Which Dvd to use to make back up disc for Windows 8 HP 2000 Notebook?

Hi Folks,

 

Just wanted to know which dvd's to buy for making back up program disc for a Windows 8, HP 2000 Notebook PC?  Do I buy dvd+ or dvd-?  Meaning a plus or a minus dvd?  I want to load the Windows 8 program on to a dvd in case a virus attacks my computer and I have to reinstall the whole computer program.

 

Thank you,

 

Mikipups, or Susie

Hi, Susie:

While HP states you can use either DVD+R or DVD-R, HP recommends using blank DVD+R discs.

 

Use a name-brand label from a manufacturer you trust, as these recovery DVDs are very important.
