Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

Sometimes saving data and starting all over would be the ideal option of a user w/ limited knowledge.  These steps and procedures may be dangerous to the unexp and unfamiliar, whereas reloading their apps which has been performed initially, would provide much more comfortability, less potential danger and frustration.

Rstoegbauer -- You are probably right, why fuss.  Nickla should get some person at Best Buy or somewhere to repartition and set up her drive.  I doubt that Lenovo will do it for her. Unfortunately, while most people just want something they can just punch, work and not worry about the consequences, this is NEVER the case.  All computers end up being complicated or needing stroking one way or another.  Better to start learning the hard way -- jump in and get involved.  My brother did this at the age of 70 and after about 4 years of REALLY struggling is quite proud of the progress that he has made from such a late and meager beginning.  He can handle most essentials now, both hardware and software.  It is not impossible.  Taking some more computer lessons might also help Nickla, if he/she is not comfortable going it alone.  Anyway, involvement is inevitable, in my view.... unless you belong to a big company with lots of extra IT staff... or you have some generous, knowledgeable relatives and friends.

Well, obviously, I do have generous and knowledgeable friends!

 

I refer to you (plural), my respondants.

 

Thank you so very much for your advice and concern.

 

I will try to inform myself over the next little while, and will make a decision later as to whether to try to repartion the drive myself, of go to someone like Tiger Direct, which is where I bought the machine.

 

You have been a great help, believe me.

 

Ciao!

Nickla -- thanks for your kind response.  I got my Lenovo computer at Tiger too.  I think they are just great and have been dealing with them for years.  Good luck.

Dear Evomr --  On my computer, Vista is the factory set program.  I am not sure what you expected?

Was a general fix ever provided that could resize the drives?

Dear Mark,

Its such an oversight from Lenovo, I have a 500gig hard disk and my C:drive is only 30 gig.

I install alot of programs on my PC, even if I install them on my D:drive most of the stuffs still end up at C:drive.

How to alter the c drive partition to at least 100gig.

Really disapointed.

Thank You

If I remove the recovery partition on my S10, is it possible in any way to get it back later, in case I want to restore my machine to factory condition in order to sell it or give it to someone else? 

 

In other words, is there a way to restore a blank hard drive to exactly the factory-fresh contents, including the recovery partition?

 

Thanks.....
