Default Hard Drive Software Not Included?

I dont know much about computers as I only use them for gaming. Now I just bought an Alienware x51 from Dell but it says the Hard Drive software is not included.

Do I have to buy anything extra for my pc to work? Or is Hard Drive software just optional.

Don't worry about it. It's not necessary.

So much for the good ole days when the discs came with the computer...
Now you have to burn your own and hope they work when you need them.

Yes, If you use a recovery disk it will load all the junk software back on that you don't want at all so if you have copy of Windows laying around just do a clean install provided you have a valid product key for it.
