Satellite L745: I deleted the recovery partition. What can I do now?
I bought a new laptop l745 and I found two hidden partition, I think that the recovery partition is only one. so I deleted the other
After that, I tried doing a recovery on DVD but I got a message "no recovery on the HARD drive" or something like that
How can I restore my recovery partition?
You cannot restore the recovery partition. It can be restored if you use the DVD of initial recovery for the installation of the OS. In this case, everything will be like before.
You created the recovery DVDs until you have deleted the recovery partition?
In fact, I would like to remove the recovery on my new P855 Satellite partition using diskpart. Now I have some problems/uncertainty (of course I have already created the recovery DVDs):
1: when I look in Disk Management on my Windows 8, there are 2 recovery partitions! a small beginning of the disc (450 MB), a bigger at the end of the disc (8,66 GB). I'm a little confused about this. There is not usually a single recovery partition? Are - this two recovery partitions from toshiba for windows 8?
2: I read somewhere that it can occure problems with the system by deleting the recovery partition. is there a risk if I delete the above two recovery partitions? (not to mention that I don't have the recovery of files on the hard drive more) May - so that it affects the stability or the ability of the system?
As I don't want to take the risk, I crash my system, I hope that someone knows about it!
Thank you guys
see you soon
And why you want to delete the recovery partition?
Its best to leave it as it is in case, you want to retrieve the computer laptop back to factory settings.

I guess that one was created by Win 8. It contains the files to fix the system in case something would be a mistake of the last partition seems to be Toshiba that contains the recovery image files.

Deletion of partition of Toshiba should not (usually) affects the ability of the system to the laptop, but nevertheless, you must create a recovery disk before you remove anything on the HARD drive.
The recovery disc will return to the factory settings in case, that the system could be confused to the top.
I have a laptop Satellite C660D-17F and want to format my HDD, remove the recovery partition and recover the preinstalled Windows 7 and other software. I don't want to keep my own data, which are all stored already, I just want to be sure I can safely restore preinstalled stuff. I have a few questions that I need help to clear up before I go ahead.
Am I right in thinking the dvd recovery disc I made when I got to my laptop has all the software and drivers that I need on this subject, the same that would have the recovery partition? If I do another room to spare in now just to be sure only will they have the out-of-box default stuff: OS, software and drivers on any of my data?
I found [this post | http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/items/faq/71] which explains the recovery process. If I select "Erase the hard drive" (so I can wipe my hard drive and delete the recovery partition too) what happens after that? It will restore the OS and the software for the backup of dvd drive? Will the process after that recreate a recovery partition (which I don't)?
I actually prefer to be able to choose what programs preinstalled settle after that I have format, but I'm guessing that probably isn't possible and will settle for install everything and remove what I'm after. Or is there a way?
Sorry, I know that was a long post, but I want to be sure of what will happen BEFORE I'll and spoil things! :) If you got this far, thanks for reading. :)
I will try to offer help. ;)
> Am I right in thinking the dvd recovery disc I made when I got to my laptop has all the software and drivers that I need on this subject, the same that would have the recovery partition?
Yes. Saved on recovery discs recovery image contains the operating system, all necessary drivers, specific Toshiba and utility tools and some additional software.
> If I do another room to spare in now just to be sure only will they have the out-of-box default stuff: OS, software and drivers on any of my data?
Preinstalled Toshiba Recovery creator make recovery disc that includes the recovery image only. It has nothing to do with your personal data.
> I found this post that explains the process of recovery. If I select "Erase the hard drive" (so I can wipe my hard drive and delete the recovery partition too) what happens after that?
After that, you should use recovery disks created for the recovery image installation.
> Will the process after that recreate a recovery partition (which I don't)?
When you use the recovery disc for your laptop recovery image installation will have factory settings which include the recovery saved on the HARD disk image. To be honest I do not understand why you do not want to have this recovery image on the HARD drive. This allows the installation of recovery using recovery of HARD drive option. But of course you can delete it later for more free space on your HARD drive. Installation image that you can always use created for recovery discs-recovery DVDs.
> I'd really rather be able to choose what programs preinstalled settle after that I have format, but I'm guessing that probably isn't possible and will settle for install everything and remove what I don't want after

Good luck and if you have any other questions feel free.
I just bought a HP Envy Pheonix 800 and there a 120 GB ssd for the OS. Ago a second partition that is for recovery that is as I wish to move or to get rid of so that I can have the other space available for files such as 120 GB can fill up pretty fast.
If I create a defined backup drive I'll be able to get rid of this partition and it is part of c:?
Or can the partition be moved safely to the other HD without any problem?
Thanks in advance for any help.
As long as you create your recovery media set - see link below-, so it should be no problem deleting the partition (moving it usually breaks its functionality). If you need to use the recovery media to perform a 'factory Reset', this process will reinstall the OS and recreate all of the original scores, including recovery D.
About the removal of the recovery partition, you can often do this through the application Recovery Manager as shown in the HP document on the link below.
If this option is not available, you can simply delete the recovery Partition using Windows Disk Manager and extend c in the unallocated space.

I just bought a place 8 Pro 5855. I did a recovery USB disk. I was wondering if there is a way to remove the recovery partition so that I can retrieve this internal storage space. I could try something like EaseUS or MiniTool, but I was wondering if there was another way that I wasn't aware of. Is there a reason why I should not delete the recovery partition? Thank you!
This is how I did it:
1. run Diskpart (from Run or CMD prompt), don't worry he'll ask the elevation to Admin
2. type: select disk 0 (main SSD)
3. type: list of partition (to see the available partitions)
4. type: select the partition 6 (my recovery partition, yours may be different)
5. type: delete partition replacement (deletes the partition 6)
6. type: select partition 5 (my Windows, to the area to recover partition deleted)
7. type: extend (retrieves the space)
8. type: exit
It worked for me on the DV8P 5830.
My x 360 laptop with 10 Windows works fine. I just installed Linux dual boot (w. Windows 10) on three new partitions. The scores are as below. E, F, G partitions are Linux.
I have these questions please:
1. is the recovery partition (D) no longer, now that I have partitioned the disk? (I did a recovery USB flash drive when I bought the computer)
2. is it safe to remove the recovery partition (D)?
3. There is also a small partition of 980 MB. What is c? Is it safe to remove?
Sorry, no. You can not recover by using the HP Recovery partition after you change the partitioning scheme.
As it is now, you might as well delete it.
It will not hurt to remove it now because the HP Recovery works doesn'y work in any case.
I know Macrium Reflect can backup and restore Windows and Linux distros because I have tried it, myself.
I'm a volunteer and I do not work for, or represent, HP.

I accidentally deleted my partition restoration for TOSHIBA SATELLITE A665 LAPTOP.
Would I be able to create a partition for recovery with the same content again?
If so, how?... really confused...
Should I buy a new recovery disk because when I bought my laptop I did not receive any recovery disk...
I'll be able to get my laptop as it was before?
Do not have recovery disks because there is a pre-installed software called Toshiba Recovery Media Creator who creates these discs.
But it must be created in the first day of the purchase, I assume that you will not be able to create this disc now because the partition (which contains the image files) has been removed.
So now, you will need to purchase the recovery (about 30) disk in order to recover the laptop. After that the recovery partition should be available again.
I have a new HP 450-011 and it came with Win 8.1 and the recovery with the letter D: drive partition. I did the upgrade to windows 10. I made a set of recovery DVD for win installation 8.1. Is there a reason for me not to delete the D: drive and replace it with my information? I seriously doubt I'll want to roll back to 8.1 Win.
Have you tested the Win 8.1 HP Recovery disks before installing Win 10?
A question is: If you need technical assistance from HP tech for a possible hardware problem. HP normally requires that the factory installed operating system to take in charge. This policy of HP may have changed during the upgrade to win 10. I do not suspect.
You can export the recovery, Partition because it will not work now in any case.
But you need a way to go back to win 8.1 when you need HP warranty support.
Since you have already upgraded to Win 10, the only way to check the recovery of 8.1 Win disks is to use them and start all over again. Or the support of disks/USB recovery HP Win 8.1 on a new equivalent or larger HDD or SSD. A good installation means that you have now the factory install on this disk.
It's a lot of work.
The problem of guaranteed support is your problem.
I have eliminated this problem by installing Win 10 on a new SSD. I have HP Win 8.1 on a separate SSD and win 10 on a different SSD. Possible guarantee problem solution means earn 8.1 running on HP SSD factory to check the problem of winning 10 SSD.
I deleted the recovery by mistake partition while I tried to format my hardrives. I have no recovery disks when I bought the new laptop. I need help in getting my laptop to a factory State. Help, please
Thanks for posting in the Forum from HP Support.
I'm afraid that, as the recovery partitions are parties and if no recovery media is created, the only way to return to the factory default condition is by buying/getting recovery (DVD or USB pen drive) media. You can get the HP recovery media (website or by contacting HP support - these are the recommended means) or by buying some stores online.
Here are the instructions > http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143

Once I have re-installed, my merged UEFI key has been activated when I am connected online.
I have the factory records with my laptop. I was asked several times by Recovery Wizard to make a copy of the discs, but I ignored, now I want to have the F11 key to work.

Accidentally deleted the Partition D:Recovery on my win machine 7 Z420. I have HP recovery disks: System Recovery, Driver Recovery DVD, 8.1Pro operating system and operating system Win 7 pro sp1. The use of these will recreate the partition D automatically or do I have to do this first. I have the orientations of the white paper "Restoring Microsoft windows 7 on the z420 ', but I was told that it will not recreate the recovery partition. There is no need to restore everything if in fact I still have until the end without disk recovery D and files?
There is no way to recreate the recovery partition on the z420. The recovery disk media that I bought with the Z420 does not include this information. It will only recover the original operating system and drivers and software that came with the system. I spoke with HP z workstation support today.
I bought a new Toshiba Satellite L500-19th with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). So far, everything is brilliant work.
I have already created the recovery DVDs.
As a result, could now delete the partition with the recovery program? I want to use the full space of my hard disk and create partitions as I want.
But I don't know how I should do this?
Could you please help me?
If you are sure that the created recovery DVD is ok at 100%, you can delete all data on the second partition.
Open Windows Explorer on the left side where is the second partition, click with the right button of the mouse and choose the FORMAT option.
Choose the quick format option and click START.
After a minute or two, all data will be gone.
Please note: in the future when you want to use recovery DVD for installing Win7 the whole HARD disk is deleted and you will lose all your data.
Using recovery DVD you can not format the C partition only.
I have satellite a300 with pre loaded Vista Home premium OS, for some reason, I had to format the entire disk and I lost my operating system recovery partition.
Can someone help me get my operating system partition?
I had checked with service centers, they said that I can use the BONES of similar model recovery partition.
So I ask everyone if someone can give me the score of the OS, I would be grateful to them.
Please contact me at [email protected]
I think that you do not understand something wrong.
On Toshiba laptops, there is no recovery partition, they have HDDrecovery folder that contains factory settings.
I have a recovery partition you want to say is a feature of Windows Vista, not a Toshiba.
Here is a useful link to it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WinRE
HARD drive recovery file is stored on the second partition of the laptop. You can use the disk HARD recovery function if you go into the advanced boot menu, choose repair my computer and select the recovery Toshiba HDD feature.
But I think it's too late now
Burn you the Toshiba Recovery disk? Normally, you can burn the original image which is stored in the file on a DVD HARD drive recovery using the Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator. Therefore, you always get a popup that you must do this or message do not forget.
If you don't l t this and you want the Toshiba recovery disc you must order a new one. You can do so here: https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
I hope I could help you. Do you have more questions?
I have a computer laptop g6-2123us with windows 7. When I bought last year they offered low-cost Windows 8 and I bought but never installed. Now that the 8.1 came out I would try first to install Win 8 then let it update to 8.1. If I do this I lose the Windows 7 recovery partition? (d drive he will make a recovery Win 8 partition?) Should I just upgrade or clean install? I remember when I first got this computer he had me do a restore, as I like 5 CD 8.1 to win is not what I wish it were, these recovery disk would allow me to put everything back the way it was? (Win 7 with the Windows 7 recovery partition?)
As a general rule, a clean install is preferable and there should be no problem with your laptop - a guide on performing a new installation of a drive to upgrade can be found on the following link.
Windows 8 drivers for your laptop are on the link below.

I deleted my mt computer recovery partition. but I want to turn back now. Help, please. I have the recovery disks.
Yes, it works perfectly. Show "Factory Reset", using your recovery disks reformatted the entire disk before you reinstall Windows 7, the software and the drivers originally shipped with the laptop and recreates the Windows 7 recovery Partition.
