What happens if the lenovo SSD data got erased?

Hi everyone


I'm a newbie when it comes to laptops. I recently purchased a lenovo ideapad u510. I'm haivng trouble making a recovery disk. I'm not sure how to do it and I'm afraid I'm not going to do the right thing. However, my brother was using my computer thinking he knew what he was doing and erased the data that is on the SSD. My question is if the stuff on the SSD going to effect anything such as making a recovery disk or if I ever need to recovery my laptop. 



I just realized that the lenovo partition was deleted is that bad?


Thanks in advance.

Re: What happens if the lenovo SSD data got erased?

hi Jfranc,


Welcome to the Forums.


The recovery partition is used to restore the unit from the factory condition (this may come in handy if you get a virus or simply just want to restore from the original image). If this image is gone, you may still create a recovery drive using this method.


As for the SSD, it's usually used as a cache drive. See these guides on how it works and how to reconfigure it.
