Satellite L750 - access to the HARD drive recovery partition
I need to reset the drive to factory settings, but can not access the recovery starts. I read the manuals
This information do not work for me. This utility, I did not at all.
My serial number 7b421068w L750
I tried to run the recovery partition, I disable for laptop and lit keyboard '0' key and tried other keys F1 - F12, but system just beep with a blank black screen and then Toshiba displays menu and the Windows loading as usual.
He has a record of factory "HDDRecovery" on the logical drive D: with all default recovery files

Missing a very important information: preinstalled OS the original that you have with your laptop or you have installed a clean version of Windows?
When you buy the new book it comes with factory settings. If long your laptop has this plant, you will be able to install the recovery image according to instructions with F8 at startup. If you change something that it will no longer work (install own os, partition structure).
In this case you must use the created recovery disc but I assume you didn't create one although it is clearly described in the document s user manuals.
Problem is that you can't do much. Either it works or not. If there is no way to install image recovery I'm afraid you need to order the new Mr. recovery disk you can do it on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
Hello I have an A300 system 9 1M unit.
I need to restore the HARD drive recovery partition, I had to change the hard disk drive, because he's dead.
Is there a link where I could download the files? IMG to ISO or any other program that can create a new partition for recovery on a new drive?
This computer is not under warranty, because it has more than 4 years.
Thank you for all the support you could give me
PS: second question: which little hard drive disk could I buy for this model? Wich, 2 1/2 hdd and sata connector? IDE? I do not know.

Hello, I have another question, how do I recognize the type of connector of the drive in this laptop?
It's a sata II or sata 3.0 compatible?
IM in the process of upgrading to vista 32-bit Ultimate edition - a Lenovo T61 laptop OS original vista home, comes with HARD 160 GB but only show 110 GB disk.
There is the hidden for drive recovery partition. now, I've wanted this disk recovery partition removed for more space for important files of video editing.
How can I remove this parition hidden containing the recovery disk?
I bought the support for laptop recovery CD - I have no need of the hidden partition.
in the process, I deleted the existing partition (not the hiiden recovery partition) and installed vista ultimate 32 and it lights without problem. I then installed
the INF chipset utilitty downloaded from the Lenovo Web site, and then installed some drivers downloaded - and all in perfect condition smooth running.
now, I decided to remove that hidden partition containing the disk recovery - whatever happens after that, I have the recovery CD.
How to remove this hidden partition? TIA
The link above is General info re remove hidden restore partitions.
"In some OEM system, such as IBM/Lenovo, is impossible to remove from Windows."

The hidden restore Partition Lenovo is a protected partition, then you will not be able to remove it through disk management as you would with any other normal partition. You can use Diskpart. You can still use these steps to remove the hidden restore partition if you have already done a clean install, but you will need a 3rd party software to combine with the main partition. It is better if you remove the first hidden restore Partition, then cross with a clean install using one of the many guides available on this forum.
Burn recovery media. Type "Recovery media" (without the quotes) in the search in the Start Menu. Open the application and follow the instructions.
Open the application by typing Diskpart either 'Diskpart' (without the quotes) in the search, or type "Diskpart.exe" in run by pressing Windows key + R.
Now with open Diskpart, you must enter the following command lines:
I. type "list disk" without the quotes and press ENTER.
II. Type in "select disk 0" and press ENTER.
III. then type in "list partition" and press ENTER.
IV. then type in 'select partition x' x = the recovery partition you want to delete (I think it's 1, I do not remember) replace x with the number of recovery partition and press to enter.
V. finally type in "delete partition override" and press ENTER.
That should do the trick. Good luck!__________________

My satellite u400-22z came with a big "hdd recovery" folder on the drive hard - yes I know what it does.
but the unbearably awful version of windows vista that came with the machine made me decide that, in the event of failure of the system, I'm still will not install this failure of the attempt of an operating system.
So I do not have these data recovery.
So those ~ 11 GB of junk sitting on my drive is bugging me, I can't delete the folder HDDRecovery, it is somehow protected against deletion.
How can I work around that?
Also, is it safe or can I make it safe, to use the small apparently hidden partition (that's recovery also?) I found, which is IIRC ~ 2 GB or larger, for own purposes, without destroying my current installation of windows?
Thanks in advance,
If you have a recovery disk and you do not want to store the folder in hard drive hard disk recovery, you can remove it.
> I can't remove the folder HDDRecovery, it is somehow protected against deletion.
Remove you it as you always do to remove all files on your system.
due to the mistake, I deleted the recovery of HARD drive partition.
So, now, I am unable to restore for example. The system state of a fe hours before.
Is it possible to "' once more HDRecovery?
I really liked the functionality of this tool, so it would be nice but - is it possible? And how?
N ° there is nothing you can do, except new disc order under https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
I'm sorry. :(
Does anyone know how to remove the recovery Partition HDD? I don't have any use for it as I repeated it CD, as well as images of partition stored on a network drive. I want that space to put a current image of my C: drive, rather than the initial installation.
When I go to delete a partition or volume I get the errors. Resizing my computer laptop completely bombs with Paragon Disk Manager and I have to reinstall all partitions! Removing sub Vista it says volume is in use and delete may cause unexpected errors.
If you really want to remove it, you might try Acronis Disk Director Suite. I never had any problems with it. A very good program.
Furthermore, I think you mean that the Windows recovery environment and that s not a feature of Toshiba.
Toshiba Recovery is only stored in a folder called HDDRecovery. It s not on a hidden partition.
However, this good article is maybe interesting for you:
Windows 7 was not working properly and I tried to reinstall. However, after the installation, it starts but it does not complete the process and maintains the pc shut down before I could use it. I can now use it just because I installed Ubuntu and I can also access all other partitions of Ubuntu, one that contains the HDD Recovery folder.
Can I reinstall windows from this folder?
I see that someone else already managed, using stormwater management files as the link below shows
You are still able to access the start menu in Windows or Ubuntu installation has been removed and the Windows boot loader?
If so, you are not able to start the HARD drive recovery more
Why? It is very easy: even if you are able to access the files, you can start this feature because the original Windows Start menu of the preinstalled Windows system is necessary to start the HARD drive recovery feature.
So in this case, you need the recovery media (USB key) that you created using Toshiba recovery media creator.
Of course, this could work without installed Windows, but there is no guarantee for this.
But why I m telling you this information? You can find everything in your owner's manual ;)
I had a very big problem.
I've made a few changes with my Vista regs and then I was unable to start again.
So, I started the recovery program (second HARD drive), backed up my files and selected whole HARD drive recovery.
Well, now problem - everything was going well, but when I walked into the Vista installation I had to shut down the computer.
Now, when I start up the pc and load Vista I message I need to reinstall my computer again.
Well, they say nothing about how load the recovery file but I have no option for this - only emergency mode, with the support of network, etc., but without recovery emergency. Moreover, when I select emergency mode, I can't load Vista-it says I need to run the Setup in normal mode, which told to re - install. Yep, circle-_-.
Model: Qosmio F50
Do you think that when I erase all the Vista disc manually - for example with linux, and then start the computer, I get a possibility to load the second part of the drive to start the installation?
Thanks in advance because I'm really despair
> So, I started the recovery program (second HARD drive), backed up my files and selected whole HARD drive recovery.
I'm a bit confused of m.
How do recover you the laptop?
Have you used the Toshiba HDD recovery option which could be launched by pressing F8, select fix my computer-> Toshiba Recovery?
Usually, it is a procedure how to start the Toshiba HDD recovery.
I guess you didn't create a recovery Toshiba drive in the past is good?
It was a big mistake buddy because the recovery disk would help you in difficult situations
Well, as I said above; You can try to start the HARD drive recovery. If this will not help you I think that you would need a Toshiba Recovery disk.
You can order it here:
Can someone tell me if the Tecra M11 is equipped with a door to provide access to the hard drive?
Previous Tecras have such a door, but I can't say for some photos of the site Web or the M11 manual if this still applies. I need to know before ordering.
Thanks in advance for any help.
I put t know what you mean exactly. hatch giving access to the disk hard but the notebooks THAT HDD is placed at the bottom of the unit.
You can easily remove the cover that secures the HARD drive Bay to get access to the internal HARD drive
I want to know when it transfers data to the microcomputer by Uart PC, USB etc., it must either be aware access to the hard drive of the PC or not.
When the Windows operating system run my programs, hard drive is accessible when there is a space of memory?
For example, virtual memory method return page-by-page, page-out using the drive hard when memory is used in full.
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. The access to my PC hard drive light flashes even though I don't run my program.
The lamp for the drive starts flashing as the computer is running and programs are running. Windows is a program that runs all the time and access the hard disk.
Hi my name is Fanta and I want to sell my laptop to someone, but I want to avoid impersonation so.
I'll use an erasure software that will wipe away my whole HARD drive until there is no data.
This is why I would like to know if there is a recovery on my HARD drive partition ready, and if there is a partition to the HARD drive recovery.
Wipe tool will wipe the partition on the HARD disk. If he wipe the partition will take the recovery partition and if I need the recovery partition and I don't what will happen?
Generally, you won't find any recovery on the HARD drive partition. The Toshiba Recovery CD should always be supplied with the device. It must be only installed the operating system with the Toshiba drivers and utilities.
However, if the Erase tool will also clear your partition then all files and data will be deleted.
The HARD drive will be formatted again during the installation of the OS. If you want to use partitions on the HARD disk, you can create it in addition with Magic8 Partitions. I use this app and it of very great.
I have a Satellite A215 from issues taken to a store, they said the hard drive was going wrong, they extracted the files it could.
I replaced the concert of 80 hitachi Moose with a new concert of 500 hitachi. When I try to launch the boot disc that came with the computer it says loading windows then goes to a recovery mode and I can't function.
Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you
At this point, it would be interesting to know if the same thing would happen with 100 GB HARD drive. Do you get the such or similar HDD somewhere for testing purposes?
It's that you can't manipulate image recovery and recovery installation procedure. Either it works or not.
To be honest, I'm a little surprised by your upgrade. I can't imagine that a small car can work with stronger engine 10 times. What do you think?
I have the Satellite L655-1HE. I created a "HARD drive recovery" through "create recovery media. On the contrary, CD/DVD, I put it in a USB Flash drive. But when I used it, a mistake was "copy of splitpart or the Canadian Red Cross has failed!" After that, I can't boot my laptop more. There is a message "BOOTMNGR missing." I think I already deleted the operating system in the player. Please help me. How can I fix?
If you can, please try to boot again from the USB and run the recovery.
Whatever the problem, if the recovery is unsuccessful, I recommend the following steps:
-buy a set of recovery-store to the wire to https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu
-If you did, and even this game fails to install, take care to check your HARD disk for problems.
Hope this helps
I have a question.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A300, which came with Windows Vista.
Normally I have the recovery with the normally pre-installed utility partition.
After that I formatted the system partition, I installed a clean and fresh Windows 7 copy.
My question is this.
Since the recovery partition does not get soiled with, is there not a way to install the disk recovery utility hard back in recovery of Windows of F8 before the boot options?
Please don't tell me that I need to have the recovery disk.
I already did, I just want to find a solution because it is not that hard for someone who accidentally formatted the system partition and had not created the disks, but the recovery partition. My guess is to do some modifications in the files of the Windows recovery environment that are launched when you use the option to repair my computer at startup, because normally, HARD drive recovery utility appears as one of its tools-options.
The problem is that I don't have to where these files are, maybe (C:\boot?)
Currently, I am trying to see if a facility upgrade of windows 7 on windows vista will keep options for hard drive recovery then maybe I will find what it takes.
All suggestions are welcome!
Thank you for your time.
OK, just a hint more, I found what is happening with the recovery environment, and which must be replaced to include more tools...
This article was really helpful:
Also, I found a few guides microsoft on changing windows 7 recovery environment.
So I continue and I think I'm close...
I deleted the partition HDDrecovery by chance but I have all the files in the saved partition.
Is it possible to recreate the partition?
Or create a files recovery disk? -
I have the program of recovery-disc-creator if possible continue to use?
Satellite Pro A300
> Is it possible to recreate the partition?
I know it s not possible to create it again without use of the Toshiba Recovery disk AFAIK this partitions contains also some brands that are necessary at the start of this partition.
> Or create a files recovery disk? -

Toshiba Recovery disk creator tool usually needs the HARD drive partition to create the recovery disk. But I doubt it will be functions if you've already deleted this partition.
But nevertheless, you can see it.
Create the partition (Vista disk management), copy these files on this partition and check if the Toshiba Recovery disk creator tool would find it.
If not, I don t think you could create this partition of HARD drive
In this case, you will need to purchase a Toshiba Recovery disk
