Just that, can the ACER laptop be partitioned without losing the option for factory recovery?


I've recently did a factory recovery for someone's ACER laptop and it's still running a little slow.


Can I partition the 449GB hard drive to separate the docs, music. photos (has 71GB of photos and music) from the operating system to see if it will speed up the laptop without losing the factory recovery option. Anyone?

Acronis Disk Director 11 or 12, or something as powerful and thorough, can probably do it.  However, it will very likely take a long long long time to move data folders/files into its assigned partition, leaving alone the factory restore partition [!do not assign it a drive-letter! or "over-run its territory], and after all of that -- you making sure the OS partition is primary and active.  !!Make sure you have restorable backups before attempting this!!
