I wanted her to at least have a way to get back to the factory image using the hard drive in the laptop in case she lost the external hard drive I am giving her (she loses her cell phone, keys, camera, etc., quite frequently so I have no doubt the external hard drive I am giving her will eventually go missing). I am honestly surprised she has had this computer for 2 years without losing it, lol! I told her when I bought this one for her that this was the last one I was buying for her and she will have to buy her own from now on. So maybe that is why she has been able to keep track of it.
I told her this is the last time I will help her if she doesn't back up her stuff so maybe that will sink in this time, too.
