Question about Toshiba Satellite L455S5000 Notebook
Since you have Win 7 Home Premium, start with making a System Repair disc. You just need a blank CD-R or DVD+/-R (DL is OK, but not an R/W disc). Click Start > Maintenance > Create a System Repair Disc. (This will save you from needing a OS install disc in the future)
Next you can use the Toshiba Recovery Media Creator to create a set of backup discs for the initial configuration of the computer. (Use DVDs for this to avoid needing lots of discs.) This lets you make one copy of the Media - no chance to update for new drivers or any other information.
You can save your files with the Backup and Restore (in the same Maintenance files as the System Repair disc). With Home Premium this only works with an locally attached external hard drive.
If you need a complete backup after this, you will need third party software. Some external drives come with the software. Norton Ghost, Paragon Backup and Recovery, and Acronis True Image will all do a full backup to CD, DVD or external drive; there are others.Most of these will make incremental updates as well. There are a few free packages but those don't have the features of the above (like recovering just one file if needed).
I hope this helps.
