you can get a new larger drive. the only issues would be that it has to be either a sata or ide whichever the original was. AND it has to physically fit in the spot that the original fit. There are a few standard sizes physically you just have to know which you have. As for size 1 TB is almost double what you have now and those are very cheap these days. Anything by western digital or seagate would be fine as they have been the leaders in disk drives for years now. The best place to get the recovery disk would be from Acer. As you already purchased the computer with windows they will sell it to you for pretty much the price of shipping and handling rather than charging for the windows operating system. You can order one on this page if you know your serial number from the computer
