Re: Lenovo y460p recovery files

2013-05-31, 1:48 AM

Thanks, that worked. I started up the computer again and noticed i have 3 partitions, C, D and E. C is a blank slate becase i did the OKR, but D and E still contain my old files. Is there a way to safely get rid of those files without deleting any lenovo files that are supposed to be on those partitions? Or can i just format those partitions?

 

Also, is there a way to see the exact spec lists of the Y460P? It's kind of hard to find now that it's discontinued. Off the top of my head i know it has a I7 2nd gen processor and a ATI HD6500M card (not sure on the memory size for that).

hi,

 

You need to manually delete the files on the Drive-D as it usually contains applications and drivers which can be downloaded via the lenovo website. I recommend you save these drivers for future use before you format the partition. As for the Drive-E, I don't recall this as a preloaded partition, perhaps this is a flashdrive / ODD?

 

You can find more info on the Y460p on this pdf data sheet.

 

 

Regards,

neokenchi

Hmm....my particular model doesn't seem to be there...is there a way to check whether a drive is 5400 or 7200 rpm?

hi,

 

Download and install HWInfo and navigate to drives. It will show you if your HDD is 5400 or 7200RPM (see sample below)

Hope this helps
