i have my recovery partition still working fine. OS is also working. But i cant do the one key recovery. The link which connects both boot agent and recovery drive is gone somehow and HP RECOVERY manager says recovery partition is disabled. But for me its still there. Can you give a solution to recover the recovery manager ?
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Once it is reformatted, it is highly doubtful you will be able to save anythingYou can try PC Inspector:http://www.snapfiles.com/get/pcinspector.htmlOr Recuva:http://www.piriform.com/recuvaJust don't get your hopes up too highhttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/292174/is-there-any-way-to-recover-my-well-i-guess-everything-after-performing-an-hp-total-solutions-recovery-manager-process/
My colleague mistakenly deleted all the file from the Windows 7 recovery drive, drive is still there and nothing have been copied in that drive after deleting the recovery files. Machine is HP Probook 4530s. Is there any way to restore the windows 7 recovery reset the system to its factory settings?
Thanks in advance
You might be able to use a free recovery tool like Recuva or MiniTool Partition Wizard. But there are no guarantees that all deleted files will be recovered or that they will be in a usable condition.

It may be safer to contact HP support and buy a set of recovery disks for your particular machine. I'm taking a guess that you are in India?

Hi @iamvaku, Welcome to the HP Forums! I read your post and wanted to reach out to help you! In your post, you had said that currently your HP 15-r036tu Notebook and needing the HP Recovery Software. HP Recovery Manager only works with the Factory Installed Operating System that came with it not with a upgraded O/S that you installed. The Recovery Manager can be accessed from the Start Menu, or by tapping F11 key as soon as you power on the laptop. This link shows you how. Please let me know how this goes.

If I abandon my efforts to install the latest Windows 10 update, would it be a feasible and a good choice for me to command HP Recovery Manager to make the "Minimized Image Recovery" to the factory condition of OS (Windows 7 Home Edition) with drivers and select software? I have used HP Recovery Mgr to backup my files on an external hard drive. Next question: How do I restore those files to my computer? Should the restoration be done in Windows 7 or after I install Windows 10 on my computer?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-Recovery-Manager-option-of-quot-Minimzed-Image-Recovery/td-p/5843826
I am running windows 7 on my laptop. I has windows vista before the upgrade. I had recovery discs for windows vista created from the recovery manager. I tried to make discs for windows 7. I would like to know why it won't let me make a disc for windows 7 because if I had trouble and needed to put in the recovery discs I wouldn't want to use the ones i had for windows vista. what should i do? here are screenshots to show what happens when i try to create the discs for windows 7.

I am on Windows 10, and for the past couple months I have had booting/BSOD errors that usually give me "bad_system_config_info" and occasionally, "0xc000021a ". Sometimes, I have been able to boot in by accessing the UEFI settings, other times it seems like it just randomly decides to let me log in to my computer normally. When I am able to login, I check for viruses and I haven't found any, as well as run commands like "sfc/scannow", "chkdsk", or "bootsect". I am trying to recreate recovery media via the HP Recovery Manager, but each time I insert the empty flashdrive, the Recovery Manager suddenly crashes. Please, any response to these combined issues would be greatly appreciated, I haven't been able to use this laptop regularly for months now.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-Recovery-Manager-Crashes-when-I-try-to-make-Recovery/td-p/5757604

I found away past it. Just close the window with the "X". Don't hit retry or it will just keep starting over.

Hello, I am trying to completely factory reset my pc but when I select Windows Recovery Environment in HP recovery manager, it just brings me to the login screen after it restarts my computer. I have tried factory resetting using windows but I get the message 'Could not find the recovery environment.'Is it possible for me to factory reset without having to spend any money, or will I have to order a disk from HP?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/HP-recovery-manager-Recovery-environment-not-doing-anything/td-p/5685793

My d:\ is not empty - it is almost 80% full but when i click on it there are no files. Tried - to the extent of my knowledge - to see if the files are hidden but didn't reach anywhere. Tried a restore point but that didnt work either. Please help
Recovery Manager has hiccups sometimes...
Try re-booting and entering at boot.
If that fails you can order the Recovery Media from HP for a reasonable price.

I removed some spyware and recovery from Manager not Recovery Gateway the does work viruses from my father-in-laws computer It works ok for a little bit but then I will get a BSOD with the STOP x e error I do not have the peripherals that originally were installed on the system as I only took the tower to work on and have my own mouse keyboard and monitor installed Would this cause the problem At any rate I want to use the Gateway Recovery Center to do a factory system restore When I open it up and chose the factory restore option it wants me to restart my computer I chose to restart but it doesn't do the restore I have also asked it before to do a scandisk check recovery from the Gateway Recovery Manager does not work on start up but it won't do that either I have the mini dump files from the BSOD messages but I am just wondering if I should go ahead and take it back to his house and hook up the normal monitor and such and see if I get the BSOD then It doesn't seem to have any particular triggers like now I have had it on and running just fine for about minutes just trying the things that I have tried before It is running Windows Update now as it hasn't had any updates since March of this year I did a System Restore and then used Spybot S D to remove what was there whatever it had at the time would cause the computer to go to a blank white screen after about seconds on the desktop at startup I was told that it had started with some FBI pop up that was asking them to send to them to unlock their system or such Spybot caught a trojan something like fakeporn and removed it Since then the computer will start up normally but then give me te BSOD after a while It will start in safemode and run ok Guide me OMG don't judge me

Hi there @HPian_B, Before I provide troubleshooting documentation, I would like to take a minute to welcome you to the HP Support Community, where you can ask questions, find solutions and get help from the community! I read that you would like to reset your HP Pavilion g6-2310ex Notebook PC to factory settings. Please read the document called Backing Up Your Files. This will provide you with ways to back up the files you have on your Notebook. Here is a document for you to read called Creating Recovery Discs or Saving a Recovery Image to a USB Flash Drive. I pulled some information from the document for you. The first thing I would like to make you aware of is that only DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD+R, or DVD+R DL discs are compatible with the Recovery Media Creation program. The following disc types are not compatible with the Recovery Media Creation program:CDsDVD-RWDVD+RWDVD-RW DLDVD+RW DLYou will then also see that in the document it says: The Recovery Media Creation software program allows only one complete set of discs to be created.The Recovery Media Creation software program requires an uncorrupted recovery partition (Recovery Image (D) to create a set of discs. Uncorrupted means the recovery partition has not been modified or removed.The creation process takes about 30 minutes per DVD. The entire recovery set does not need to be created in one session.The Recovery Media Creation software can be aborted at any time, except during the writing (burning) process, by clicking Cancel. The next time the Recovery Media Creation software program is run, it automatically starts where it last stopped.You can use the recovery discs you create on your computer on another computer only if the second computer is the same model as the one that created the recovery discs.Here is a document called Performing an HP system recovery (Windows 7) and another called Recover Windows 7 Operating System Using Microsoft Windows Backup and Restore. - This is used to Recover, Restore, or do a Clean Install of Windows 7. Please make sure that you read these documents very carefully before you decided to reset to factory settings. Thanks for being a part of the HP community. Please let me know if this helps resolve the issue by marking this post as "Accept as Solution". If you require further assistance let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help. Please also re-post with the exact error message you received. If you wish to say "thanks" for my effort to help, click the "thumbs up" to give me a Kudos.

I just bought an HP Envy laptop with Windows 10 preinstalled. There is a recovery partition, but I'd like to erase the data in this partition and use it for personal files. My question is: if I do ever need to re-install or recover Windows 10 on this laptop, can I do it with a DVD I burned using the media creation tool from Microsoft instead of the specific HP recovery app the laptop shipped with?
Thanks for any info...

Recovery partitions that come on a pre-loaded box will contain the factory image as set by HP, in your case. That would include any pre-bundled bloatware and such. If you want a clean, fresh start without the crap, save the contents of that recovery partition on an external drive, and during clean install from your MCT DVD, delete the partition and extend the OS partition. MS Win 10 will create it's own recovery partition.
I bought the computer with win 8.1 installed and some months ago I have upgraded to Win 10 and now i have problems and was advised by remote support to reimage the computer with recovery DVD windows 8.1 that was ordered for me and I recived from HP. It says on the disk: "To begin insert the disc into an optical drive and follow the on-screen instructions.I did so with disk 1 and nothing happens and nothings appears on screen. I tried to reboot from the DVD media by clickking esc while booting and tried the recovery options and it failed syaing that it can't recover this computer. Please advise
Hi, Try the following. Start the notebook. Insert the 1st Recovery disc and Shutdown the notebook by holding down the power button for 10 seconds. Tap away at the esc key as soon as you press the power button to enter the Start-up Menu and then select the Boot Options Menu ( f9 ). Use the arrow keys to highlight the CDROM (uefi) option and hit enter - if prompted to 'Press any key to continue....' - do so.

I replaced the hard disk, i have the three recovery DVD for windows 8. please help me to recover the same.
when i am trying recover from Recovery of factory default software(out of box) is not working. please help
Start your machine and press F12 to enter boot menu. When you see the boot menu on the screen put disc 1 in optical disc drive. After doing that choose CD/DVD as first bootable device and press ENTER button.
ODD should start to read recovery disc. All you must do is to follow the menu on the screen.
When you write “it is not working” what do you mean exactly?

Ran Seagate tools on the drive as well as Bios disk test and it appears to be ok.
I did not try the FIXBoot or FIXMBR commands yet. DIR does not return anything.
It's like there is no Windows installation on the drive or directory structure.
Drive is ST3500630AS
On Boot the message is:
Non-System disk or disk error, replace and strike any key when ready.
I want to create a recovery media for my laptop running windows 7 home basic. so i just want to make sure what would be better for creation of recovery media, DVDs or a USB flash drive? because I heard discs are prone to get corrupted as compared to USB.
So what should i use? i'm really confused
Here are the expected lifespans of various data storage methods:
Magnetic data and cassette tapes: 10-20 years
Nintendo Cartridge: up to 10 years
Floppy Disk: 10-20 years
CDs and DVDs: 5-10 years unrecorded 2-5 years recorded
Blu-Ray: Not certain, probably over 2-5 years recorded
M-Disc: 1,000 years (theoretically)
Hard Disk: 3-5 years
Flash Storage: Depends on write cycles, 5-10 years or more
Source: Data storage lifespans: How long will media really last? - StorageCraft
Bear in mind that these lifespans could be shorter, or longer, depending on things like manufacturing quality control, how the end user treats the media, etc. I have several hard disks and CDs that are over 10 years old and still working just fine. I have DVDs approaching the 10 year mark and working well. I also have a couple of 64MB and 128MB USB flash drives that are well over 10 years old and still working. But I've also had brand new flash drives fail out of the box as well as CDs, DVDs, and external hard drives.
My suggestion is to buy quality name brand products, make your recovery media, test it, and then create a second set of recovery media on a different product. (One set of recovery media on CDs and one on a flash drive.) Test the media once in a while to make sure it's still working. And maybe make new recovery media every couple of years "just in case".
And don't forget to make periodic system images. Recovery media will usually restore your computer to original factory configuration and then you have to reinstall everything from scratch. A system image is like a photograph of your entire hard drive and you can restore your computer to the same condition it was in when the system image was made. If you make a system image once a week (for example) your computer will never be more than a week out of date.
Perhaps others will join in with other suggestions and thoughts.
I've a HP Pavilion with Windows XP. I never had an installation CD because Windows was an OEM version. But the system has a special partition containing all original files. I'm trying to wipe the C drive clean and reinstall orignal, factory supplied files. HP calls this distructive" recovery and you can access it pressing F10 on start up or from HP Tools in Windows.
I've run it three times. As a matter of fact, last time I did so I watched files names scrolling across as were apparently being reloaded and could recognize promotional files originally on the computer but deleted long ago. I'm beginning to feel good.
Problem is that after the dust settles (and everything has happened as you would suppose -- no error messages) and I return to Windows, absolutely nothing has changed. Everything is status quo ante. C drive not formatted, orignal files not reinstalled.
I have an HP PAvillion DV2000 that had a disk failure. The primary partition is dead (get's IO errors), but the "HP_Recovery" partition seems to be OK. I copied the recivery partition (using Partition Copy" function of Partition Commander) to a backup drive and replaced the disk drive. The new drive checked out fine from end-to-end, so I did a partition copy of the recovery partition back to the new drive from the backup drive. I can see the recovery partition as well as the "C Drive" partition, but I cannot get the recovery partition to be recognized as a bootable partition either by the BIOS (either as the primary partition or as the partition pointed to by pressing "F11" t startup) or by Partition Commander. I have tried everything i can think of, but it feels like I am missing something. Anyone have any ideas?.
The MBR of systems with a recovery partition senses keystrokes to enable boot from the recovery partition. That is now gone and it is not normally bootable.
If you create an SGD Boot Disk and boot from it, you may be able to bypass the MBR and boot directly into the partition. It has worked for others, but that really depends if the partition was altered in the imaging process.

HI Jsd1,At the startup, before windows attempts to launch, Press F11 to launch the HP Recovery Manager.if the partition containing the Recovery Manager has not been formatted, then this can help. you might need to backup data before doing this as this will reset the laptop to the factory settings.here is a guide for the Recovery manager: http://h50146.www5.hp.com/lib/doc/manual/workstation/xw8400/HP_Backup_and_Recovery_Manager_User_Guid... regards

I recently used my system recovery CDs for my HP Pavilion in an effort to clean out my computer get back Recover to Recovery System unable CD to the factory settings and make it go faster It turns out this was a pretty big mistake The whole process was going good up until I put in the rd recovery CD At System Recovery CD unable to Recover the file quot BASE quot I forgot what type of file it was -- I will check again later if it is necessary the computer stopped reading from the CD and a message came up saying quot Could not recover BASE quot with my options being Abort and Retry I retried a few times with no sucess The abort option restarts the computer and brings it back to the beginning of the system recovery process beginning this cycle again If i try to start it without going to system recovery it says there is no operating system and it cant start so it brings me back to the system recovery process where it once again stops on CD Anybody have any idea on what I can do now to fix this Right now my computer wont start and it is looking like I will need to purchase a new one Thanks a lot in advance Brian nbsp
Sounds to me like CD3 is either dirty, defective, or damaged. Try cleaning it, if that doesn't help then call HP and try to get another if you are still under warranty. If you are out of warranty you can format the drive and install the OS of your choice, just remember to go to HP's site to get drivers since they do use many proprietary devices.

Hi, I bought a laptop from a large retailer, it was a demo laptop.I've created a set of recovery disks from the laptop and have attempted to do a recover using them. (when creating the disks i did get the recovery software to verify the disk for errors) once i boot to the DVD drive i get the below error message. your PC/Device needs to be repairedError code: 0x000000f i've reset by BIOS to back to factory defaults and it makes no difference. i noticed there is no recovery partition as well, im guessing the store deleted it for some weird reason. this is not so much a problem if i can get these recovery disks working.

Ok so I apologize in advance if this story is a bit long and horrifying actually it's probably entertaining xD nbsp I purchased the Lenovo y p gaming laptop on back on July th I got the laptop and it just didn't work for me It didn't play the games I wanted it to it had overheating issues the keyboard "Recovery How deleted Partition" to recover had a really sharp edge making typing uncomfortable as well After installing Sony Vegas and Avast and just shifting some of my personal photos music over I made a backup of the laptop using the OneKey Recovery software This backup was made to one of my GB external hard drives nbsp So I then decided that I How to recover deleted "Recovery Partition" just How to recover deleted "Recovery Partition" didn't like the laptop and it was time to return it I called Newegg and got my RMA all ready to go Because I had lot of my personal files and programs I decided the fastest way to delete everything would be to use the OneKey Recovery by Lenovo and do a factory reset At the time I didn't think anything of this then simply putting the laptop back to exactly how I got it I even booted it up after the factory reset and it looked just like the first day I got it Fast forward weeks and my RMA is denied from Newegg nbsp nbsp nbsp Your RMA RMA Number return was received and sent to our Inspections Department for closer examination nbsp - - nbsp NB LENOVO IDEAPAD Y P RTSystem has been modified altered original manufacturers operating system has been removed cannot access restore partition this voids Newegg warranty Unit cannot be accepted or resold as received nbsp nbsp So I was completely shocked as to how I had managed to delete the recovery partition I didn't modify the OS in anyway and I phoned Newegg to check what was going on They confirmed that the tech people at the returns department could not reset the laptop properly because the recovery partition had been deleted So the laptop is being shipped back to me this week and my question was what on earth could I do to recover this deleted recovery partition nbsp nbsp If the OneKey Recovery still works I don't see why it woudn't then I can restore the backup that I made on my external hard drive from Day That should bring back this alleged recovery partition that's been causing all hell to break loose lol If however I can't access that OneKey Recovery I believe I'm in a huge pile of trouble Newegg said that if I can manage to recovery that lost recovery partition then they will honor my RMA and refund my money nbsp At this point in time I'm trying to salvage my situation and think and act quickly as Newegg does have a day only return policy I didn't do much with the laptop when I had it other than test a few games so I honestly have NO IDEA how I could've deleted the recovery partition But I'm not thinking of that anymore and thinking ahead as to how I can recovery this deleted recovery partition nbsp Thanks for reading this horror story and I really appreciate any responses nbsp nbsp
If you only used One Key Recovery by Lenovo, it should not delete the partition. (I hope you did not format the whole system) Once you receive the laptop, you can check if this partition still exists in Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Disk Management.It should show some drives, other than the C: , D: and the SSD (if you have). Those drives are the recovery partitions. I can post a sample screenshot in the evening. Sadly, I do not know any way to recover that partition. As I have seen on this forum several people who lost that partition could not roll back their laptop to original settings without a recovery drive (which is different from a recovery backup).https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/How-to-recover-deleted-quot-Recovery-Partition-quot/td-p/1668749

If you cloned the HD over then the Recovery Partition should be intact, although whether it will still run from the hotkey at boot is questionable. What is your make and model so we can advise you on trying to boot Recovery?
If Repair console is on the HD it is the 100mb System Reserved partition placing it on the F8 Advanced Boot tools menu. What options do you have on that menu now? Does Repair load if there?
Since you have the DVD to use the preferred method of reinstall, you probably don't really need the Recovery Partition anyway, so may want to recover its space if it doesn't cue up to run from boot. You can always order Recovery Disks from your tech support if you didn't make them when Recovery was still working from All Programs.
Hi All I'm in a real bind When I first bought my ASUS N JQ Laptop it was recommended to make a set of backup cd's to recover the system in the event of a major incident which I duly did Today after putting up with a poorly running Windows for too long I decided to install a new SSD and try and do a clean install of my system software from these CD's They all loaded successfully and when they finished loading I was prompted to Restart the computer All looked good on restart the Windows logo appeared then another screen and after a few from recovery recover CD's Windows ASUS 7 Can't seconds a very large red word saying quot ERROR quot and the message quot cannot find c recovery dat I've spent the rest of the day trawling the web to find the way to recover Windows from the data put on the SSD from the CD's but to no avail I would have thought that if ASUS wanted you to make a backup of the recovery files they would also give you the procedure on how to recover to a clean installation Can't recover Windows 7 from ASUS recovery CD's Unfortunately I can't seem to get a lead anywhere I'm confident there are some people out there who know how to do this and I would really appreciate it if you can point me in the right direction because is starting to really do my head in Regards Ron
Hmm, wait until someone gives a green light on this:
Some searching show this is quite common
Make a bootable media of Partition Wizard free and delete the hidden recovery partition.
If it works, later "move/resize" C into unallocated space on left.
I don't mean to highjack the thread but I have an additional question that may be helpful for others performing the same type of recovery. I ordered the recovery CDs for my HP 2000 Notebook just today. To increase performance, I am also thinking of replacing the factory-installed 320GB hard disk drive (HDD) with a 240GB solid state drive (SSD). QUESTION: Does the OS recovery CDs/DVDs need the drive to be the exact same size - 320GB? Obviously, WIndows will fit just fine of a 240GB drive. Does the recovery process recreate the recovery partition as well as part of the restoration process? Thank you for your time and any advice.

SSD are pretty inexpensive for 500G right now. You don't want to go smaller. It doesn't have to be the exact same size but it should always be bigger not smaller. Factory recovery will create AS IS from the factory setup and recovery partition if you should use the Factory Recovery media.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Re-how-can-i-recover-my-laptop-with-recovery-DVDs/td-p/5681210

Hi I had 2 external hard drives connected and in disk manager I clicked delete on the wrong one? So now the drive wont show up, so I simply created a Simple volume and know it is a RAW drive? How do I recover the files there was over 100GB and some of them are really important such as records and work related stuff, it is currently a RAW partition and all the hard disk recovery softwares dont recognise it because it is a RAW drive? do i have to format it to recover the files? Please Help!?!
Do not format the disk.
this would make your task more difficult or even impossible.
There are free partition recovery tools available on the net.
Question the deletion, was it your operating system or are you still able to boot into Windows. I have never been in this position but someone will post some software for you. Just don't muddle the disk any further.
If you are able to boot into Windows this link will give you an idea of what you are looking for. Hang on because I know some forum members have done this will be suggesting more software.

Perhaps the viruses are preventing you from recovering your system, or perhaps the disks
got corrupt, I would try to kill off any viruses first.
Run these programs to check for virus infection:
Windows Defender Offline
Please download Malwarebytes:
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes, deselect that option when prompted.
Run a full scan once downloaded, installed and updated.

While Windows installed with-out problem, the OEM Microsoft products ( MS Office) that came with the machine did not install at all.

Hi all I recently purchased a new motherboard after my old one died I can't get my Vista running on it again I have a SATA harddrive with Vista Ultimate x installed on it When I boot the machine I get the standard Windows Error screen I've inserted the Vista recovery disk in the optical drive but even after changing the BIOS options to boot first from the optical drive the only way System find to Vista recovery OS recover cannot I can load the recovery disk is by physically unplugging the harddrive When I try to repair Vista with System Recovery Options it cannot find an OS and can't seem to recognize the harddrive after it's plugged back in I have System recovery cannot find OS to recover Vista both the motherboard driver disk and a USB drive with the harddrive's setup program but System recovery can't load the drivers Finally when I open up the command prompt and run chkdsk r the error message I get is quot The type of the file system is NTFS Cannot lock current drive Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected quot Any idea why it refuses to boot or recognize the existing OS on the harddrive At this point even a clean reinstall would be fine but the install disk also can't find the harddrive Any help would be much appreciated Thanks
Welcome to Vista Forums!
What is the manufacturer, make, and precise model of your computer? What is the manufacturer, make, and precise model of the new motherboard and where did you get it and can you provide a website link for the motherboard? Have you verified with the computer manufacturer that the motherboard will work in that computer given the other components and its requirements? How did you run chkdsk if you can't run the Recovery Disk with the HDD installed and can't boot to the HDD? If you need to re-install, how will you do it (genuine Vista Installation Disk, Recovery Disk from the Manufacturer, Recovery Partition on the hard drive,...)?
My first guess is that the motherboard is not compatible with one, some, or many components in your computer (or the computer in general) and/or with your version of Vista. Another possibility is that the BIOS aren't compatible with the motherboard and you either need updated BIOS or a motherboard that can work with them (or possibly that the BIOS just need some type of reconfiguration based on the change).
My second guess is that the system wasn't put back together properly in some way and thus is causing this problem. Double-check all the connections. Don't just snug them - remove and replace them all.

Hello, hope I come to the right place! Honestly, my Toshiba flash drive has been used for saving some videos, photos and files for several years. But, last night, I just formatted it by mistake and lost all my stored information. Honestly, I did have another copy of these files on my computer, but, some of the newly edited videos and several school documents have not been backed up yet. Is there any data recovery software that can help me take them all back? I did have searched a lot of the related problems over the internet and all of them recommend me to apply the related data recovery tools. But, I am not sure whether the related data recovery tool is really necessary? Do you have any similar experience? What am I supposed to do now? Thanks!http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forum/windows-29/any-data-recovery-software-recover-usb-drive-4607734/

If I understand correctly you created a USB Recovery Drive when you had Windows 8. It only contains files that help recover Window 8 in the event of a problem, it will not contain the factory recovery partition. It is of no value now since you tried to install Windows 8.1 by DVD. Was it an update version or upgrade to Pro?
Should you wish to return to Windows 8 OEM you must use the recovery partition process as outlined by Acer to reset to Factory Conditions. Hopefully the recovery partition was not corrupted when to tried to go to Windows 8.1. If it was, you will have to order Recovery Disks from Acer for a nominal charge.
Others here on this forum may have different ideas or understood your problem differently.
Following a number of unexpected shut downs I decided to run the system recovery discs on my old advent 7109 xp comp. These are 5 discs which were made when the laptop was new; They have never been used - until now. The process stopped during recovery disc 2, with the message unable to recover c/136/s3sav3d.in_
since then I can go no further; each time I start the comp it is at the same recovery point at which it stopped.
Is there any hope of being able to fix this? And, in case you're wondering why I'm still using XP. It's an old back up that I use for documents etc
The only thing you can do, as far as I can see, is start the recovery again with Disk 1 and hope it can read all of Disk 2 this time.
Hey guys I've tried searching a lot about this topic but couldn't find an answer or maybe it was too complicated for me So basically i 'm trying to restore my windows home premium to factory settings I don't have a backup CD and I can't find my product key which is supposed to be in an sticker at the back of my laptop Well there is a sticker but its been two years and the sticker has been washed out sort of and I can't properly see the product key now My HP G notebook PC has partitions Drive C is where all of my data is stored Drive D is named recovery which I guess is a manufacturer's recovery partition It occupies about GB of memory The third partition has nothing I was manufacturer's recovery partition recover Need to 7 my windows using thinking I could restore my laptop to factory settings using this manufacturer's recovery partition but a Microsoft support guy told me I'll need the product key and a windows disc for this to work So what do I do now How do I get my product key I tried contacting HP to see if they could help me with the product key thing but since I don't live Need to recover my windows 7 using manufacturer's recovery partition in the US they keep transferring the line Need to recover my windows 7 using manufacturer's recovery partition from one department to another I'm so disappointed with their so called support So could you guys please tell me what shall I do now
Offhand, I think the MS support guy is wrong.
I've never had a PC with a recovery partition, but my understanding is that they will restore without any Windows 7 disc or Product Key.
Somebody will correct me if I'm wrong.
You'd need the Product Key from the sticker if you were going to do a clean install, but you aren't.
I think the recovery partition will self-activate.
I don't think recovery partitions are foolproof, so you may have issues of some kind. But generally they work OK.
You must back up any personal data or it will be lost.
Due to a program failuer (partition magic) some of the data are corrupted and some are deleted. By using PC inspector i could get almost all of them back but still some are corrupted. for example some JPGs and WAVs which are so so important to me!
by any chance do you know any program which can revover CORRUPTED files rather than try to undelete them???
this topic helped me out a bit but no one had correct answer to my problem!
Ill appreciate your help.
Hi, can anyone help,
my system recently crashed,
showing a message " windows can not start because the following file is missing or corrupt \windows\system32\config\system". so I used my XP start up disk which ran the system recovery. I now find that all my files/data is missing and the system has gone back to it's original settings. After searching TSF I see "Getdataback" is an option. Can you tell me is this a good program to use? Will it help my problem?
That's an excellent program but do you have a desktop or laptop? You're going to need another drive to retrieve the datahttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/how-to-recover-lost-data-following-system-recovery-469542.html

Hi there, Do you not have Recovery discs?How did you previously load Windows 7 on your Notebook? The media creation software allows only one system image to be created. If you created a set of recovery discs, you can not create a system image on a USB drive. The media creation software requires an uncorrupted recovery partition (FACTORY_IMAGE D. Uncorrupted means that the recovery partition has not been modified or removed. That being said, at this point, I cannot guarantee that the image will work on your USB.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Re-Don-t-have-Recovery-partition-and-Recovery-Manager-to/td-p/5596486

Hi, anyone know of a program that will data recover MPEG-2 movies that were accidentally removed from my Recycle Bin? I have tried several programs, including Recover My Files, GetDataBack, Stellar Phoenix - one found no files, the other found 1300 files (where there should only be about 10), and the other found the right amount, but the files themselves were absolutely huge, so it must have merged the missing MPEG-2s to some of the other movies that weren't deleted.
Can anyone please suggest a way out of this, either by naming a program that can recover MPEG-2s, or a setting that I need change on one of the progs that I've already tried?
Hola try drive rescue or ontrack- data recovery
A follow-up to my previous thread:
I, with the help of other generous members, have concluded that my USB drive has automatically deleted the important & only files that I had on the drive... is there any file recovery software besides Recuva that are freeware and can restore the files from USB?
Anyone who needs more information is kindly requested to go back to the original thread ( http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic127696.html ) and he/she can infer what I am referring to.
Thank you in advance.
there are several software that you can use.
When it comes to recovering lost files, I prevfer Runtime's GetDataBack for FAT or NTFS, your USB Flash drive will most likely be running a fat file system, so use GetDataback for FAT.

Could you tell us exactly which procedure on your link you followed to cause the problem? You do have the recovery media the site suggests?
You say the system is booting normally, even with the errors?
Could you describe your configuration. A laptop with just Windows 8.1 installed? If you were trying to recover the GUI boot menu, what other OS are you booting with and how is it installed, same hard drive?

Hello, I'm at a loss and afraid I've lost all my files. Every time I restarted my computer I kept getting the Windows Boot Manager error message: Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data. However, after googling and trying numerous methods to repair this, I now keep getting prompted with the Windows Recovery Manager. I assumed that choosing the default factory restore option would prompt me with a back up option, but it didn't and proceeded to reformat. I quickly shut my computer down. I don't know what to do next because now all I get is the Windows Recovery Manager option. Any help would be much appreciated!
If this string of events actually did start to reformat the drive, it might still be recoverable. I would boot the computer to an independent OS IE: Linux Live on a CD or DVD and then look at the drive. Then use that to copy your data to another drive. Once the data is saved, then do whatever you want with this corrupted drive. Do not try to continue with any other operations until the data is saved elsewhere.Since this PC came with Vista, once the data is saved, you could try the HP REcovery Manager to restore the original OS. Or just start over this a new install of windows 7http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Boot-and-Lockup/Windows-Boot-Manager-Error-Windows-Recovery-Manager-Issue/td-p/5603963

I made 3 recovery disks for my hp laptop and ever since i posted the "my laptop wont turn on" ive been having problems with system recovery.
i want to system recovery, put the first disk in, formated the hard drive, let the recovery manager put the disk files on the laptop, and let it restart. now what do i do, there are 4 options. i need to do the other 2 disks, and if i try to use the computer, a popup says "system not fully installed. run setup again." Now what should i do? my parents hate windows vista and i dont want to put factory installations and stuff back on it, because it had vista.
have been through the whole folder lock shambles and still cant get my files back -i know they are there just cant see them -think i have exhausted every option except using a recovery program
Can anoyone recommend a software recovery program that will recover these files? -am happy to pay for the program but really was hoping to find someone who had sucess with one before buying
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
What do you mean when you say folder lock files? Do you mean it has the little lock icon next to the folder?

After experiencing an error with windows, it wouldn't start up and said I was missing the hal.dll files, I fired up the windows recovery program. It worked like a charm, replaced windows and the hal.dll file, however all my folders with docs and pictures on the desktop that were there previously (which accumulated over years) were not there anymore. Is there any way to recover these missing folder and files? They weren't saved on the c: directly but only on the desktop. I tried system restore but it said there were no system recovery points I could recover from.
Does windows make a backup of these desktop files before it deletes them?
Please help anyone, thanks!
If the computer hasn't been used much since the recovery most of your files will be intact.
The tricky bit is getting them back. The only real way to retrieve your data is to remove the hard drive, plug it into another computer as a second drive and run a piece if recovery software over it.
The first two links are to free recovery software, the third is paid for - this one does work very well.

Please post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image.
Tell us which partition had Windows 8. Did you correctly delete that partition which is how an OS is best removed?
Do you remember how you "restore[d] the MBR" exactly? Did you move the System boot files to Win7 or its System Reserved partition, and how? Has Startup Repair been run from 7 disk and what did it report?
If you deleted or formatted the Windows 8 partition and it's System Recovery Options remain then was the remaining System Reserved partition originally for WIndows 8 and only updated when Windows 7 was installed? This is the only way I can think of that Win8 SysRecovOptions would remain.
Seeing the screenshot and knowing the answers to these questions should make correcting this possible if the boot manager isn't corrupt. Keep in mind that any factory installed Win7 is a grossly inferior install to begin with, larded with bloatware and duplicate factory utilities that have much better versions built into Win7. Most tech enthusiasts choose to Clean Reinstall Windows 7 with the Product Key on the COA sticker.
As a last resort if you've lost Factory Recovery via F8 and that is the method to boot Recovery for your model, you didn't make the Recovery disks, but Recov partition is still intact, we could show you how to Boot Recovery Partition using EasyBCD to set the rig back to factory condition. Then you can Clean Up Factory Bloatware

Recently, I tried to install some service pack update & it wreaked havoc on my computer. After fiddling around with it (it had basically frozen while installing the pack), the whole thing ended up wiping Everything clean & in the end, I needed the install disc to fix it. (which I *just* found)
So now I'm stuck on some "Welcome Window" & it won't connect to the internet. I know the connection works, cause I'm using the same broadband line to it on my laptop now. I keep reading online about fixing w/ a "Recovery Manager" in the start menu, but I'm not seeing that anywhere. There's an error I see that says "Error 815"..."WAN miniport", etc.

Start by updating all of your drivers.
and yes, windows updates can make a huge difference. For example, no windows updates, no directx.

I deleted my Recovery Manager feature off of Windows 7, wondering if it possible to recover? I wanted to restore back to factory settings but it fails every time, pretty sure it is due to the recovery manager being missing. Tried the F11 option also, still no hope. After hours of searching I now realize that it cannot just be added like a regular application but is there any possible way? I ordered the HP Recovery Disc hoping it holds an answer but I'm kinda in a time crunch. Any alternatives?
Even thought about upgrading Windows 7 but I'm guessing it wouldn't upgrade what isn't already there, correct?

Are you stating that you removed Windows system restore from your computer or are you referring to a third party recovery manager program?
Thanks in advance.
When I open my HP Recovery Manager and select "yes" for the Software Program Re-Installation,
the Select a program to install window appears (like it should) EXCEPT it is EMPTY!!!!
Where is the list of all the programs that we installed on my computer when I first used it?
HP Pavilion dv7-1245dx
Vista Home Premium x64
Above link may answer any questions you have about HP's reovery manager.
I got something buggy on my laptop, and i want to recover my laptop to the first time i got the pc. And when i downloading the recovery manager i got a message : This softpaq wil nott be installed on this pc beacuse HP Recovery Manager cannot be found in this system. Any help ?
Your specs say, HP PC with Windows 8 x86, therefore not Pre-installed, HP Recovery Manager would only work on the old OS & not on the upgraded OS.http://www.eightforums.com/performance-maintenance/24196-hp-recovery-manager.html
My Hp Laptop Was In The Process Of Getting An OS Update & My Sister Turned It Off (As A Prank) Before Windows 10 Finished Installing. Long Story Short I Had To Reinstall Windows 7 On It But Before Downloading Win 10 I Had To Free Up Space On My Recovery (Partition). So I Formatted It. Now I Don't Have HP Recovery Manager Or Any Other HP Factory Apps. How Can I Get Those Back?
Hi, There's no download for Recovery Manager, but pretty much all the other software and drivers for your notebook can be downloaded from the link below. http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pavilion-dv7-3100-entertainment-notebook-pc-serie...

Backup your files, shut off the PC, turn power on again and keep tapping F11. That will get you to the reinstallation wizard - follow the prompts.
