Restore recovery disk


Hi Billy,
depends on what you mean by restore. Assuming you have windows installed, you can make a back-up by going to START > Control Panel > System and Security > Create a backup

(the path above may be a bit off from the wording, the PC I am on at the moment is not an english version.)

Then on the left side there is a link to create a recovery disk or create a backup. the recovery disk option only makes a bootable disk to start your computer if your windows cannot start. This only gives you an enviroment where you can try to fix windows or to restore a backup that you created beforehand with the second option above.

If you create a backup, there are two things to keep in mind... what type of data do you want to back up and how often. You can put check marks on all data that you want to backup (Note: the more data you backup the larger your backup file will be). If you plan on restoring a corrupt windows with the backup you should include "System State".

Restoring from a backup file a.k.a. backup image will ONLY give you back the files that were on your computer at the time you made the backup... that means everything that you created after you made the backup will be lost.

Hope that helps.

I don't have recovery partition


follow this step and do it. God bless you

  • 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.

  • 2

    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.


  • 3

    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.

  • 4

    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.

  • 5

    Restart your computer. When done, open Norton Ghost to verify that the Recovery Partition was created.

    Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


    Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

    Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

    A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

    If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

    It looks like you'll have to either return it or perform a default factory recovery. These instructions are from their site but proceed knowing that this will erase any data that is stored on the primary partition (meaning if you have anything on it, it's gone...). Esentially it resets it to a point as if you just picked it up in the store (which you did.. :( )


    How can I restore my computer with the backup discs I created?
    With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
      If you have a recovery disk:

      With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
      1. Ensure that the computer is completely shutdown, then turn on the computer.
      2. When the eMachines splash screen appears, tap the Alt and F10 keys simultaneously. A screen stating "Starting eMachines eRecovery" should appear.
      3. From the recovery options, choose Restore system from CD/DVD.
      4. Insert either the first Recovery or Backup disc that you created.
      5. From the on-screen options, choose a backup.
      6. Click OK and the installation will begin.
      7. Change the disc as necessary when prompted.


        If you do not have a recovery disk:

      8. Restart the computer.
      9. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
      10. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
      11. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

    I just purchased a Pavilion dv7 4165 lap top.I was told I should create a back- up disk for the system in case the computer encounters a virus and I have to dump everything.I was told it would take around...


    Linda, press the Windows key and type recovery. The disks are not really backup, per sa. The disks are needed in case your hard drive fails. The system disks are shipped in a D:\ drive, fine if the drive works, but not helpful if the drive itself fails.

    If you do not find the recovery disk program, look in accessories and system tools.

    If you still cannot find it, go to HP.com and look under support. HP has free support and they can help you.

    Hello,

    I found these instructions for you on the Sony support site.



    Solution
    sp.gif sp.gif IMPORTANT:
    • Before performing a recovery, go to the Sony® eSupport Web site at http://esupport.sony.com and check your model-specific support page. Look for software and driver updates or check for knowledge base solutions that may help you solve your computer's issue.
    • This model does not require Recovery CDs. Recovery data is included on a special partition of the hard drive.
    • Do not interrupt the power during the recovery process.
    • Before performing a recovery, disconnect any external devices not supplied with the computer such as printers, network cables, cameras, or external storage devices, like hard drives or flash drives.
    • Customers who purchased the Symantec® Norton Internet Security® 2007 software from the Sony Style® store with their computer must create a Norton Account to save their product key prior to a system recovery or the software cannot be reinstalled.

    NOTES:

    1. Click the Start button, then click Help and Support . NOTE: If the Help and Support link is not available on the Start menu, re-enable the link in the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties window.
    2. In the Windows Help and Support window, click Backup & Recovery .
    3. Under Backup & Recovery , under VAIO Recovery Center , click Launch VAIO Recovery Center .
    4. In the VAIO Recovery Center window, under Choose a program , click to select the desired option:

      NOTES:
      • It is strongly recommended that recovery discs be created to help restore files if the operating system will not start. Recovery discs are bootable and can be used to perform a recovery on a properly functioning hard drive.
      • The Windows Backup and Restore option opens the Backup and Restore Center provided with the Microsoft® Windows Vista™ operating system. This provides the ability to save information from the hard drive, such as personal data files, and restore previously backed up data.
      • Computer problems related to hardware can be diagnosed using the VAIO Hardware Diagnostics option.
      • One or more drivers or factory-installed applications may be reinstalled with the Reinstall Programs or Drivers option.
      • The entire (C:) drive can be restored to its original, factory-installed condition by selecting Restore C: Drive .
      • Choosing Restore Complete System will restore the entire (C:) drive, while removing or restoring the Recovery Drive partition. Modifying the size of the hard drive partitions is also an option with this type of recovery. This option requires you to insert Recovery DVDs created using the Create Recovery Discs option.
      • To remove all data from the hard drive, including the operating system, all programs and personal data, choose the Wipe and Erase Data option. This option is provided for the convenience of advanced users who want to install a different operating system, and who want to ensure all data has been removed from the hard drive first. All other users are strongly urged to avoid selecting this option.

    Please update me on the same.

    System recovery


    hello,

    Yes, everything will be lost when you use system recovery, but if you can do backup you files in your computer, you can do system recovery., So if you cannot back up your files maybe i suggest you to scan your computer online. www.precisesecurity.com/antivirus/online-scan.htm
