Re: Can I rebuild Lenovo OneKey partition?

2011-01-31, 23:35 PM

Thanks to your reply, yigit.

 

BTW, if my existing 500GB fails in a day & I use the recovery (factory) dvds made from OKR, I could recovery the windows partition but not the hidden recovery partition. Is that right? So does it mean that after recovery from dvds the OKR function (recovery from hdd) will fail?

 

Does it mean that I need to use some softwares to image all partitions in the existing hdd so that in future I could extract the image into a new hdd & get OKR function back?

 

Well, I am a little bit annoyed by the large C drive but small D drive so that I must store my data on C drive. It appears that I have no method to expand D drive while keeping OKR.

you may need to re-partition the volumes if you're gonna use one key recover discs with new hard disc.

and yes, it will fail to cause okr discs don't restore hidden partition ( as i know )

 

if you want to keep okr, there's no solution...

if you don't, you can resize the volumes and use it ( do not forget to burn your current system volume by using 3rd party applications )

 

you can use easeus disc copy to clone your hard disc ( tested before, it works )

- if you create recovery dvd with current system after installing updates, you can prevent the updates.

- only c system volume. you can use d volume for your personal files.

Z560 OneKey making backup discs... says needs 3 DVDs but only uses 2

2011-02-05, 1:37 AM

Hi,

 

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,

 

Ros Mac Thoim

as i read on this forum, it is ok.

it sometimes happens but to make sure, you can try to burn recovery discs again.

Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

2011-02-05, 13:10 PM

Hello All!

 

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.
