How to open a recovery partition


Typically pc angel is software that is use by the manufacture to protect the recovery partition. So I would not recommend breaking into that partition of your hard drive. Beside since you were able to run a search and able to get results those pictures should not be in the D drive. PC angel should not allow you to access that drive anyways just to do a simple search.

If you wish to continue to access your D drive then follow the link below.
NOTE: This may damage your recovery drive and may not be able to use the system recovery at a later date. DO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
-Suggest to make recovery disk if you have not done so already.

I have a spywhere infection on my advent laptop how do i resore to factory settings?


Using the HDD Recovery System
Your Advent computer uses the latest recovery system that doesn't require any CDs or DVDs to restore your PC to it's original factory condition.

There are two ways to start the recovery -
Restart your computer. Then Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.
In Windows by clicking: Start / All Programs / System Recovery / System Recovery.
The recovery will load and display a box with one option:
Non-destructive recovery: this option will restore Windows, supplied applications, and drivers. This option will not destroy your documents or programs. These will be backed up along with the registry. These are restored at the end of the recovery process.
To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.
System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.
System Recovery - Quick format: this option will erase your hard drive including your personal files. Windows, supplied applications and drivers will be reinstalled.
Select the Non-destructive recovery option and press Next.
You will be informed about System Restore in Windows, click Yes.
The recovery will begin. Once this is complete click Restart.

I have same problem


The D drive is normally a partition of the C drive rather than a separate drive and is used by many to keep restore files handy for restoration use; system backdating to refresh system files. The D partition, while available and accessible for other purposes is customarily not used for user files and because of the nature of the system installed files, has protection against accidental erasure.
You should be able to copy your photo folders & files intact back to the C (main) partition and regain normal use of them.

Cannot access pc angel protected recovery partition files


Hello Sasafras,

PC Angel is the vendor of the recovery software, the use a proprietor file system for encrypt there files. I can understand how frustrating it is to have the file right there but not able to use them but I'm sure it says some where in the EULA that there recover software only allows back up of 1original recover disk. Most of time you would press a F10 to boot into PC angel recover mode. In your case since your going to be upgrading to Windows XP Pro I would suggest to download the drivers from the gate way website and then update your service packs. Below is a link that has the drivers to your computers system. You can get more specific with a service tag number to narrow down the amount of components that usually ship with that model of computer.

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=5395

this link will have all the drivers you will need to get your computer working again.

hope this helps you.

Remove the emachine/PC ANGEL RECOVERY SOFTWARE


PC angel isn't installed as such it uses the desktop.ini to load its software.

desktop.ini is used to by windows to customise the view of individal folders in windows.

if you know how go to command prompt
type in;
attrib -h -r -s -a c:\folder\*.* /d /s
( replace c:\folder with the drive/folder of the protected folder )
next type in
del c:\folder\desktop.ini
( Again replace c:\folder with the drive/folder of the protected folder)

Bye bye protection for that folder

I have a laptop that i have only used a few times, and when it boots up it gives you the vista set up screen, with is very simple to complete. When i go to reboot the laptop always after i have completed...


PC Angel will keep coming up when you try and restore the system with the discs you have. Its an integrated solution for PC manufacturers to deploy there systems. The issues you are having usually only come about when you are either trying to install the software on a system it wasnt intended for it does read the hardware and check it the correct computer. or if you have a corrupt disc. Couple of things you can do, firstly you can contact the computer manufacturer support and tell them you are having the issue, or you can delete the disc partition and re-install vista from a different disc. Deleting the partition is easy and just requires software, do a google for free partitioning software and you wil find it. As for getting an IDE converotr, you might find that the laptop if its a new one, has an ATA drive and not an IDE, most of the new laptop have ATA drives installed.
