modifying the one key recovery partition data

i brought ideapad Z570, apparently the main (OS) drive was around 652 GB, while the other drive (backup drive) was 30 Gb approx...

 

I recreated partitions (without affecting partition structure table and boot partition and hidden partition) to get around 200 GB three drives a 30GB partition. But OKR recreates all those partition back to two and deletes all the info on other drives too.

Is it possible to edit the info of hidden partition data so that it creates multiple drives and format only one drive (system drive) without recreating all the partition
(Editing /OKRBACKUP/factory/MBR.okr file or any other files too)

 

By this, we can create multiple partition, OKR will still work and the data on other drives will be saved too, meaning a customised one key recovery feature...

Re: modifying the one key recovery partition data

You say it recreated the partitions back to the original format? Did you boot of factory discs to do this or just restore from the hidden partition?

There are some other discussions on this subject

In my case OKR left my newly created partition (created after shrinking the OS volume) alone, but it wiped the contents.

As for modifying the behaviour of OKR in this respect... I have no idea, maybe but I doubt you can modify the contents of the *.okr files to achieve this easily if at all, though.
