Re: OneKey Recovery not working

didn't help.

But I realized following.

 Total Files Listed:
           11659 File(s)  1.298.291.156 bytes
            7806 Dir(s)     531.673.088 bytes free

that's the content of the hidden partition, which is 14,75 GB (at least that's what I'm told using that console with "dir /a /s").

so if there's obviously no image _file_ for recovery, maybe the recovery image is simply written on the corresponding hdd sectors (but not enclosed in a file).

I still can create recovery discs from the initial settings. so the recovery image itself is still ok, only the live okr system does not start correctly.

maybe that's something we can work on?

yes, try to use discs if you can create.

Re: OneKey Recovery not working

i have those discs since i have this notebook ;-)
my idea is to use okr for restoring own images too (e.g. different snapshots on an USB hdd). I don't want to backup ~ 70 GB on DVDs.

just to start okr via the button and then select a custom restore image.

Disk partitioning on G560

[ Edited ]

I hope that I'm not asking a question that's been answered elsewhere but it seems that the (many) disk partitioning questions are model-specific.

I've had a G560 for a month or so and am trying to understand the partitioning. There's a 30GB D: partition called LENOVO with only ~1GB of data on it; I think just drivers. Screenshot below. What is the point of such a large, empty, partition? Is there any benefit to utilising it in some way (I was wondering about virtual memory/paging file).

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Re: Disk partitioning on G560

you can use that for anything.
personal data, backup, media drive, truecrypt storage...

pagefile on a separate partition but on the same hdd should give you no real benefit imo.

Re: Disk partitioning on G560

So why did Lenovo bother with it? My ancient Dell laptop had a C:\Dell directory for drivers etc and that was sufficient. If the Lenovo/Win7 system was installed on one partition and user files were on the other, I could understand the benefit. But here I really don't get it!

Re: Disk partitioning on G560

call it "service".
if you need to reinstall drivers / shipped software, you don't have to download them. second, this drive is the default backup drive for onekey recovery.
and if you delete this partition you might lose functionality of the preinstalled onekey recovery live system (which you should have on another hidden partition).

Re: Disk partitioning on G560

Looks like I actually have 4 partitions!
