Hi there, I have a lenovo laptop Ideapad Z570 with Windows 7 and one key recovery installed.
I would like to create a recovery disk and also I would like to change the size of the two partitions.
The reason behind that is the partition C is very big (421 GB) while partition D is very small (29 GB) and I would like to use partition D for my personal files in order for them to be a bit safer in case I need to use the recovery disk.
Unfortunately I have heard that if you change the partitions sizes OKR will not work.... is it true????
If this is the case could I change the partition sizes first and then create the recovery disk????
Alternatively what would you recommend to do????

i found a way to use one key recovery even after installing new windows. through diskpart , just mark the oem partition as active. then ur computer would always boot into the one key recovery thingy. then just restore your computer to INTIAL BACKUP, not the backup created by you

I have a problem. I have Y570 and last week a lot of trojans infected my pc. I don't have any recovery dvd's but I thought maybe one key recovery button help me to restore my pc to defaults.
Here is the oroblem; if I restore my pc, how can I set one key recovery to format D drive too. Because if OKR only restore C drive, viruses and trojans in D drives still will be there after restore.
Also do you think my OKR files infected from viruses and trojans too?
What should I do?
