Hi sinfulslave  , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

The recovery partition contains OEM system image for using One Key Recovery features to restore original out of the box image when using the Novo button to turn on and starting System recovery OKR from initial backup. Any formating or changes in the harddrive size partition may corrupt this image.  

 

More about how an OEM partition is partitioned on this article and this discussion

 

Available utilities and drivers here on the support page as free downloads and on Microsoft Store such as this   Take note that other preloaded apps would only be available as bundled software from the original image . 

 

Hope this help answer your query. 

 

Regards

Hi sinfulslave , 

 

Greetings. 

 

From the hardware manual (item 7 page 59) , show the Novo button  to turn on for the OKR feature (page23) .

You can check if the features would still offer factory reset system recovery from initial backup . But such would delete current windows installation.

 

 Again , available utilities and drivers here on the support page as free downloads and on Microsoft Store such as this   Take note that other preloaded apps would only be available as bundled software from the original image would be a good option if you are all set with your windows now. Else purchasing a recovery image by calling in technical support

 

 

 

Any particular software / utilities you would like to reinstall?

 

Regards

Hi sinfulslave , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Good to know recovery still works for you. 

You can also take this opportunity to create your own Recovery Media for future use specially if you need to replace or upgrade your harddrive .

 

Feel free to visit our community for your query and sharing your ideas with fellow members at anytime. 

 

Best luck to all your endeavors. 

 

Regards

Hi sinfulslave , 

 

You can check it using disk management

There are hidden folders that you can unhide on folder option too. 

 

Related article here.  and using disk part if needed.
