Recovery Diskette/CD
Explanation:
since this is a computer term, I would leave recovery as is and since we're saying that it is on separate media, we can call it diskette oder CD - you know best which one they use. If you need to use German, try "Wiederherstellungs-Diskette/CD", but I don't like it.
