Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

apiwatw08, yes, you got it right.
Keep your data (music/movies/games/installers) on disc D. And also %tmp% and %temp% folders.
Just google for "change location of temporary files folder".

Do you have the sizes for a Y710?? I tried the sizes you posted and the onekey utility says "The hard disk partition is different from the preconfigured backup".
 
Will be happy if you could find the solution
 
Best Regards from Mexico

Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

I have had my IdeaPad Y510 for only two weeks and have already filled up my C: drive. This FAQ has been helpful and I have copied my User folders to the D: drive, but when I try to delete the User folders off my C: drive it keeps telling me I am using a file (everything else is closed) and it just hangs there. How do I get rid of this set of folders from my C: drive? Also, that will remove 4 Gig from my C: drive, but every new program I add goes into the C: drive and it will still fill up soon. What can I do then if all programs need to be on C:? I'm a bit of a techno-luddite, so please keep answers simple...

Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

I think that changing the location of swapfile (pagefile) can help to free up C drive.
Control panel->System->Advanced->[first button-dont know what is in English Vista]->Advanced

here you can change allocation of pagefile.

raywel, what have you done to move your docs to D drive? Did you just cut-pasted that. You must use "move documents folder"(or so) from context menu of Documents folder. Also if there are unwanted and non removable files you can use this utility http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/ but I advise to use it carefully - do not delete files that you don't know what they needed for(could harm your system or even kill it).

Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

Hi,

 

just got my IdeaPad Y510 and was going to return to factory settings with Vista DVD that came with it. Accidentaly I removed the small partition and now it only shows on my Administrative Tools > Disk Management one big partition C: with 135GB and one hidden partition with 15GB (EISA) that I cannot access.

 

As some features were not working I tryed to use the NOVO button to make a System Recovery and got the message that partition size was changed from its original and System Recovery could not proceed.

 

Does that means that I permanently lost this feature? How can I fix this and perform the System Recovery?

 

Thanks!
