Y50 - How to restore 1 TB HDD to original partition sizes?

2015-09-06, 20:27 PM

I have a Lenovo Y50 series of a laptop  with a decent-sized  of a HDD with 1 TB.


I´m fancy to upgrade from Windows 8.1 to 10, but before that,  I would like to do a factory reset first and then make a clean 8.1 backup.

Now I´m realizing that my re-partitioning is stopping me for using factory image in any way. Trust me; in every way.


The actual question is then:


How to restore the actual partition sizes, so that the provided One Key Restore could be usefull again?


I can obviously re-size partions by Ubuntu pendrive or with some windows-based freeware.


What I wish the community is,  to share precise partition sizes needed, please?


I could probably try the "Testdisk"-freeware to retvieve the original partition layout.
