Satellite A300-1MT - how do I access the hidden partition


I have the model Satellite A300-1MT and I don't know how to access the hidden partition.


Why you want to access the hidden partition?

Do you know why this hidden partition has been created on the HARD drive?

This hidden partition is created automatically by Vista and it contains backup files that are needed to repair the operating system if something will go wrong.

It s not advised to access this partition or delete it!

  • Re: Satellite Pro L450D - 12 X - how to access the recovery partition?


    I've formatted Windows 7 with a Windows XP CD but did not setup. I wanted to know how to access the recovery partition to set it by default, everything exists on the laptop right now is Ubuntu, but I don't know, I saw an additional partition that must contain recovery files as laptop did not come with a recovery disk and unfortunately did not create a filter.

    How can I access the recovery partition on the laptop having in mind, I formatted the drive Windows 7 was installed on or should I activate or something like that?

    Any help much appreciated


    On the second partition of your laptop (data partition), you will find a folder named HDDrecovery and it contains recovery files. The problem is that you can use the HARD drive only with the pre-installed operating system recovery feature. It would mean in your case it s too late now and it s not in use anymore.

    You have created the Toshiba recovery disc as mentioned in the user manual? If Yes, you can use this disk to restore to factory settings. Just boot from this CD and follow the instructions on the screen.

    If you don t have the recovery disc, you can order it here:

  • XPS 12 / Win 8: how to boot from the recovery partition / reinstall Windows?

    Messed up things on a newly purchased 12 XPS in Windows 8, and I want to boot from the recovery partition and reinstall windows.

    Support online pages point by pressing F8 during startup, but this does not at all.

    How can I access the recovery partition?

    To access to the menu of, , press F2.

    To enter the boot options menu, press F12.

    Because the XPS 12 boots so fast, it is better to repeatedly press F2 or F12 after restarting the machine. During the startup process, texts for options should appear at the bottom right of the screen. If you enter Windows, you will need to restart again and press F2 or F12 until it works. However, I don't think there is an option in the BIOS to restore the computer to its factory condition. The previous post by DELL-VIKRAM M describes how to properly restore the machine to its factory state.

    As far as I know, it should be the right one because of my knowledge the Atheros Wlan card has been installed in this unit.

  • Satellite A300-1MT: where to download for Win XP Toshiba face recognition

    Hello. I bought Satellite A300-1MT, but installed Windows Vista does not suit me.
    I am install Win XP. I found all the drivers on the toshiba web site. But cannot find Toshiba face recognition.
    Please advice me something!


    I fear that you will not find this tool for Win XP m.
    It seems that this function can be used only under Win Vista OS.
    If page European driver of Toshiba does not provide these software for Windows XP, then you won't be able to find it on other sites

    So I see only one solution; back to Vista if you prefer to use!

  • Satellite A300 power suddenly goes out during the race for hours

    Dear users of the Forum,

    I am facing a strange problem in operation.
    My laptop Satellite A300 is suddenly down power during the race for hours.
    It is auto off not exactly. Not the way windows stop, is rather like strength to off (as when I press on & power button to stop force).

    This happens automatically, starting again, the screen saying "windows does not stop properly, start windows normally" is apperanig.

    I suspected virus infection, I tried full scan with nod 32, essential microsoft, kaspesky - 1 by 1 (previous uninstall and install the new), but all the antivirus intremediately scan stopped due to this power off.

    Watch movie also stopped in the Middle, attempted to convert the movie file format also was arrested several times because of this problem of automatic disconnection.

    I tried to run only on the power (remove battery) and got the same result.

    can anyone identify the problem? can you please give me the solution?



    I put t think it is s virus.
    En me it looks like overheating. Eventually the high internal temperature requires the laptop to close. This is done automatically to prevent the equipment from damage
    I'm not quite sure what could cause this exactly, but in most cases the dust inside the fans affects cooling performance and lead to a temperature higher than m.

    Higher temperatures could affect the RAM modules too, and perhaps that is the reason why some applications don't work properly.

    What to say; try to clean the cooling fans using a jet of compressed air and check out how the laptop would proceed
