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

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

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!

Re: Disk Partioning and OneKey Recovery Feature

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.
