I how to remove the recovery partition and make the entire hard drive, a recovery partition?

I have two hard drives and the two have a recovery partition. Disk 0 is disk 1 80 GB and 500 GB. I want to remove the recovery on both partition and drive 1 recovery partition. Disc 1 is much older, but I would have preferred free space on disk 0.

The "recovery Partition" in question is not a thing of Microsoft.  Ask that ever created it (the manufacturer of your computer) which will probably help you not because it's beyond their desire to do so.

I suggest you create / have external media and numbers of series/product key in another place course of the computer itself.

  • How to remove the old hard drive files. Can not defragment

    Not enough space to defragment.

    I'd be interested to see a report of Disk Defragmenter. Open Disk Defragmenter and click analysis. Select view report, and then click Save as and save. Now find VolumeC.txt in your My Documents folder. Open the file, place the cursor anywhere in the file, select Edition, select all to select all the text and copy and paste into the body of your message. To do this, before you run Disk Defragmenter because it is more informative.

    Select Start, all programs, accessories, System Tools, cleaning disk to emptying your trash, delete temporary Internet files and other selected options. I recommend also you click Other Options, System Restore and delete all but the last system restore point. Run Disk Defragmenter

    Using the system restore option is most appropriate when your system is slow and you need to increase the free disk space on your C partition. If you have errors that could be solved by using the system restore to your system settings back to before that the error occurred initially, do not use this option.

    You can create more free space in C in carrying one of the measures suggested below.

    The default allocation for the restoration of the system is 12% on your C partition is more generous. I have them would be reduced by 700 MB. Make my computer right click on your icon, and select System Restore. Place the cursor on your C drive select settings but this time find the slider and drag it to the left until it shows 700 MB and output. When you get to the settings screen, click on apply and OK and leave.

    A flaw that might be useless which is for temporary internet files, especially if you keep no copies on the disk offline. Setting the default value is 3% of the walk. Depending on your attitude to copies offline, you could bring it to 1% or 2%. In Internet Explorer, select Tools, Internet Options, general, temporary Internet files, settings to make the change. At the same time, look at the number of days, the story stands.

    The default allocation for the basket is 10% of the disk. Change to 5%, which should be enough. In Windows Explorer hover over your Recycle Bin, right click and select Properties, Global and move the slider from 10% to 5%. However, try to let you become so complete that if it is complete and you delete a file by mistake it will bypass the Recycle Bin and have gone forever.

    If your drive is formatted as NTFS another potential gain arises with your operating system on your C drive. In the Windows directory of your C partition you will some uninstall files in your Windows folder in general: $NtServicePackUninstall$ and $NtUninstallKB282010$ etc. These files can be compressed or not compressed. If compressed text the name of the folder appears in blue. If these files are not compressed you can compress. Right-click on each folder and select Properties, general, advanced, and check the box before you compress contents to save disk space. On the general tab, you can see the winning amount by deducting the size on disk size. File compression is only an option on an NTFS formatted disk partition / partition.

  • Satellite Pro L50 - a: how to replace the memory, HARD drive and battery

    I just uploaded 2 new video from Youtube on the L50 - A. Satellite Pro

    The first is a tear down showing how to replace the memory, hard drive and battery (you can also clean the fan if it detects overheating).


    BTW why they made it so difficult to get just to the battery in this model?

    WARNING - proceed at your own risk and don't forget static precautions!

    Hope they help and if you have any questions let me know.

    Thanks for these videos. It may be useful to replace the memory, but I think that the owners of the laptop should not open the case. This may void the warranty.
    Be careful about this.

  • How to remove the disk HARD passwordon Portege R500?


    do you know how to remove the HARD drive password? I know the current password, but if I try to remove it by changing your current password to a blank password, it does not work.
    It has password always news.

    Thank you


    I hope that you use the correct and just HARD drive password because it of necessary to remove and delete the existing HARD disk password.
    If you have forgot the password for HARD drive then the HARD drive should be locked and you would not be able to unlock the HARD drive!

    Generally, the HARD drive password can be deleted in the BIOS.
    Please ensure that another password would be removed too.

    I found a forum thread useful on a password disk HARD similar question:

    According to the information published by the user jonr17 you must first make sure that all other like BIOS passwords, user and supervisor passwords are removed.
    Then try to remove the HDD from the BIOS password.

  • When I deleted a picture of my MacBook, why it also remove the external hard drive?

    So I tried to help my wife to free up space on his MacBook Pro by putting all of his photos on an external hard drive. After iPhoto slide the hard disk and wait 40 minutes so that he could transfer, I wanted to make sure it worked. I ejected the disk and then plugged in. Of course, all iphotos were still there. Just to be sure, I deleted one file in the folder on the computer's iphoto. I went to my shock and horror, the external hard drive, that it has been deleted it too! How is that possible? I've been scouring the Internet trying to retrieve this file with no luck. It was not in the trash. There is a tab "recently deleted". Time machine was not turned on. iCloud shows nothing. I can't download any software, because the computer is completely filled. How is it possible that by deleting this folder on the computer he did also leave the hard drive? AND it has not been saved in the trash? I have used PC, and whenever I need something in return, he was ALWAYS in the trash. And if I deleted something on the computer with an external hard drive connected, it would NEVER be removed from the external hard drive at the same time. I'm so frustrated and feeling SO bad that I deleted a folder with important pictures of our kids. Is that what I can do to recover the pictures? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    You used Time Machine at all? I see you say it was not on, but it never on and is at - it a backup Time Machine on the Macbook Pro?

  • Satellite Pro P70 - Has: 2nd invisible HARD drive - how to initialize the 2nd HARD drive

    I have a P70 - A. Satellite Pro
    'Primary' hard disk failed, and has been replaced by the service centre.

    Now, only the main hard drive is shown and the Service Center said that I had to 'initialize' the second hard drive to make it visible. They assure me that the hard drive is there, just hidden.

    How can I make visible?
    How do I initialize it?

    Usually, you can initialize the disk by DiskManagement.

    In disk management, right-click the disk you want to initialize and then click on initialize disk.
    In the dialog box initialize the disk, select the disk to initialize.
    You can choose to use the master boot record (MBR) or the style of partition GUID partition table (GPT).

    Once a disk is initialized, you can create partitions on it.
    After you create a partition, you can format the partition to create a filesystem (NTFS).

  • How to use the second HARD drive of Satellite A210 - BP1 for mirroring

    Satellite A210-BP1 came with 2 HDD (160 GB).
    Now, I want to use the second hard drive mirrored the first, one that has Vista installed.
    This should be done without supervision and in real time - as a RAID 1.

    How can I do this?
    I also have Vista professional available and I would be willing to use 3rd party software as well.

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Hi Jan

    I doubt that this is possible
    Why? The point is that you need to use two hard drives in mirroring, RAID striping, mode etc technology
    Satellite A210 can't RAID. It s only a SATA controller without RAID capacity!

    Therefore, the final answer is; NO, it is not possible to use mirroring


  • How to install the second hard drive in the Satellite A200-1 of body weight?

    I see my new Satellite A200-1 of body weight has two hard drive bays, the research in the second span, I don't see how a second drive can be mounted as the plug into the Jack seems to be missing.

    What parts do I have to mount to place a second drive that they are held in stock by out of the local computer and are quite cheap, can someone advise me on part numbers etc of the bits I need.
    Thank you


    I know that this empty place for second HARD drive is a bit confusing, but the same situation is with my A200-1CR. The fact is that some A200 models come with 2 hard drives and laptop case design this place must be prepared for this second HDD.

    But this does not mean that each A200 can be improved for the second HARD drive.

  • How to hold the safe HARD drive in the Ultrabay HARD disk adapter


    One of the things that I like most my ThinkPad is the Ultrabay. The Ultrabay is by default occupied by the optical drive, but the optical drive can be removed and replaced with a hard drive adapter, a battery or a serial port/parallel adapter. The question always seems not to exist but the disc adapter hard ultrabay is fit to several models. When I insert the ultrabay adapter in my R400, I found that there is little space between the ultrabay and the computer. It is annoying because you have to worry about dust. But the biggest problem is, HARD ultrabay drive adapter could not hold the HARD drive safely! As the photo above, I show the adapter and the HARD disk is connected and hold by the junction! So if submit you adapter to a lot of movement, the drive connector can easily get damaged. Is there a solution to help?

    Hi, the drive HARD Ultrabay adapter is designed for the drives own Lenovo coming w metal a little "shopping cart" mounted around the disk hard with four screws. The adapter is slightly too big. Unfortunately Lenovo does not have shopping cart available as a spare part for use with non-Lenovo disks. In this thread a seller in the United States is listed by selling the caddies and my positive experience with him.

    Of course the caddies made US make unnecessarily expensive. It would be great if you could find a supplier selling these carts located in your geography at a more competitive price. Be sure to post your experiences here, if you manage to find one.

  • Two hard disk drives, how to remove the new E drive in XP?

    My XP system crashed and I reinstalled the Windows XP operating system and I have now 2 hard drives, the original C with 76 GB of space and the new E with only 2.5 GB of space and I get a message that says that my disk space is insufficient, and I can download is nothing more nor can I use the system restore because it says that there is not enough disk space.  How can I get rid of this new drive E and keep my old C drive?

    You told us that if you try to install with a CD or a restore partition by pressing an F key?

    The product key sticker is on the side of the hard drive?  It's a bit a strange place for the Windows product key sticker, this sticker is usually outside the computer.  You really need to make sure that you have the product key, otherwise you will not be able to install Windows!  The product key is made up of five series alphanumeric each containing 5 digits or characters in this format: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX.

    I can only emphasise this point, you better, make sure you have the right key, otherwise you will be up the proverbial Creek without a paddle!  If you can still start the old installation of Windows, I suggest strongly that do you use ProductKey of Nirsoft to retrieve and check the key used for installation, ProductKey is available here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html

    How many hard drives you have installed in the computer?  If you have only one disc, and if you use a CD for installation, then when you get to the selection screen of disc and partition delete all partitions on the disk and then create a new partition using all available space on the drive and format it NTFS.  Once you do that and before you start Windows Setup, restart the computer with the CD and then install Windows on the new partition, this restart after you delete and recreate partitions avoids assignments of unexpected drive letter by the installation program.  It goes without saying that all data on the disk will be lost when you delete the existing partitions, and then create a new.

    When you install Windows make sure that only the keyboard, mouse and monitor is connected to the computer, disconnect all other devices such as external hard drives, printers, flash drives, etc.


  • Remove the old hard drive's "system Reserved" partition

    I installed a new Seagate 1 TB hard drive and a new operating system Windows 7 Home Premium 32 - bit on my HP Pavilion a6500f PC.  I kept the old Seagate 500 GB disk, put it in an envelope and formatted to use as a unit of storage for backup of my drive.  However, when I open 'Computer' after having turned on the envelope I have 2 drives listed instead of one.  It says a (J) is the system reserved partition and the other (K) is the drive.  I put a picture to show what I mean.

    As you can see in the middle there are two partitions for the main drive (C), and the bottom shows the drive J and K.  What I want to know is how to get rid of this drive J so that all I have is the K left.

    Help will be greatly appreciated!

    Personally, I would use free mini tool to format the drive externally

    Of course you have formatted the other not the entire disk partition

    Reason to use the mini tool is that it is more user-friendly :)

    But you can drive system 6 reserved a right click and select Delete volume



  • How to remove the entire NAC solution?

    We recently received the request to work on the removal of the full implementation of the NAC of our company.  The major problem is that the security team in place now was not around when it was introduced a few years ago.  Any help on how the best way to rip it all up would be appreciated.  Weve got about 1500 users, so its not going to be a small project to say the least.  Fortunately for us, the team that has put in place did not a lot with it. IT doesn't check the user against the AD and allows or quarantines the user/machine, that's all.

    Version 4.7.2

    A question, what do you do with the migration? 802. 1 x?

    In any case, I think the best option is to remove the switchports for the NAC by defining "uncontrolled port". Please notice that you must configure the VLAN, because most of the time the VLAN initial NAC is configured to isolate the client computer.
