    Toshiba (and as far as I know some other notebook manufacturers) do not provide any recovery disk in the package.
    Mostly you can create such recovery disk yourself using the preinstalled software called Toshiba Recovery media creator. Should check your preinstalled programs.

    So Toshiba Recovery media creator allows you to create the recovery disk ( 3 DVDs) or an Recovery flash memory stick (I guess you will need an 16GB USB stick)

    Really? Did you check it properly?

    *Click on Desktop -> Desktop Assist (in task bar) -> Support & Recovery -> Recovery Media Creator*

    By the way: recommend strongly to read the user manual (page 104 recovery section)
