Since most newer computers don't come with a Restore disc, I would
suggest burning the Restore partition and any associated "utility"
partition to a DVD. Usually it fits on one. That way if your hard
drive goes belly up later you can slap a new one in and put the machine
back to a factory state if you wish.
I also recommend Clonezilla for taking snapshots of your working system.
It's slow on NTFS, but will fly through most Linux friendly filesystems.
