Hi all,I recently bought a Asus tower with windows 8 installed.When I go into my computer I see C and D drives listed.When I open up defrag I see 3 partitions,C drive,recovery image and windows RE tools.

When I go into disk management I see 4 partitions,C,2 recovery partitions and a EFI system partition.

I am sure the recovery partition is for restoring the OS but how do I use it.I can't seem to find anything in my programs pertaining to this.Does anyone have an idea,Tony.

Hi Tony

 

I have gleaned this from the ASUS website:

 

  1. Place your mouse in the top or lower-right corner of your display, or press Windows+C shortcut. The Charms will appear. Click Settings Charm.
  2. Click "Change PC settins" at the bottom of your display.
  3. On the left side menu, click "General."
  4. Scroll down on the right side, and click "Get started" button underneath "Remove everything and reinstall Windows."

 

Good luck - let me know how you get on.

 

Steve
