To create a partition from a new or newly formatted computer, make sure Windows is installed. Load any programs and drivers you would like to keep in case you need to back up to a previous version of your computer's settings.
Install your partition creation software; in this article we will use Norton Ghost. Before creating your partition, disable any anti virus and other scanning software.
Create your partition by going to your ms-dos prompt: from your Start menu, press "Run," and type "cmd" without quotations in the run dialog box. At the dos prompt, type "fdisk" without quotations, and choose option 1 (Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive). Set the partition size to 10 GB at press enter.
Open Norton Ghost and follow the instructions to create a recovery partition in the new partition you had just created. The process should take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the size of the files you are going to back up.
Restart your computer. When done, open Norton Ghost to verify that the Recovery Partition was created.

If your Sony VAIO computer has been infected with a virus, its system files may be deleted or corrupted, which will cause system instability.
Depending on the type of virus or the specific files lost, you may not be able to manually fix the problem.
You can restore all of the system files back to their original condition and recover the operating system to its factory settings by using a hidden recovery partition on the VAIO
Click start control panel scroll to folder options view place a tick in show hidden files folders and drives.
This may vary depending on your operating system.
Close any programs that are currently open.
