I'm using a new Z560 running Windows 7 (in Japanese, in case it's relevant). When making the system recovery DVDs, OneKey Recovery 7.0 tells me it needs three 4.7 GB DVDs. However, it only uses TWO DVDs and gives a successful completion message. Is everything OK? I don't want to restore to find out.
Many thanks in advance,

I'm proud owner of Ideapad Y560, but like others I have some questions about partitions on hdd.
My partitions are C: the larger one, and D: the small one....
On C: I had some invisible partition 30 gb large, 1 gb (OEM) partiton and the rest is regular.
On D: which is FAT32 format, I have FREEDOS...
I admitt, I messed up with C: partiotion, specialy wiht invisible 30gb partition. I delete it, format it, I tried to expand it, shrink it, but it stays as it is. For what it is this invisible partiton?
I installed OKR 7.0 and it save files now on D: FREEDOS partition.
Did I mess something up with this "I do not know for what it is" 30 gb partition??
Thanks for your replies!

this invisible partition includes system anf factory backup files that one key recover needs.
if you have freedos version ( if your system comes without operation system ) as i know, it just includes/included one key recover system files, not factory backups ( i may be wrong )
okr 7.0 is using d because it's the second partition of hard disc.
hope these helps.
