    You should be able to do a search for "Dell Backup" to find it to run using OPTION ONE in the tutorial below.

    In addition, I found this at Dell that can help more with this.
    It would seem that Dell DataSafe does not exist as nothing is found with a search.

    However, I have managed to get to the right page via the Dell Backup and Recovery tile and create the System discs.

    Thanks for your help.

    I have some other questions/issues but will create a separate post for it/them.

    I spoke too soon.

    The first disc took 45 mins and then gave the message that there was an error. The disc is still trapped inside and I cannot open the tray?

    Any suggestions what the problem may have been and how I get the disc out?

    Do I have to try another disc or can I re-use the first one or do I have to get in touch with Dell? Why they simply dont supply the backup discs is beyond me!

    Have managed to get the disc out, but when I shut it down an error message flashed up. When I then re-booted it now goes to a 'Boot mode is set to:UEFI; Secure boot:ON' mode.

    Did a Diagnostics and it has identified a Video Card problem: Error Code: 2000-0332, Validation 129053.

    As a new unit it will have to be replaced. Absolutely gutted. I've had no problems with my 4 yr old Dell but immediate problems with the new one.

    System image backup might have helped when it comes to the new machine (not sure though). Always a good idea, me thinks. Good luck with the new machine.

    I'm sorry to hear that Rudge. Hopefully they'll get a new one to you soon.
