Hello folks,

I want to perform NDR(Non Destructive System) recovery. I am using a HP computer with windows XP since 5 years and now facing issues with it. I want to format that computer. I do have lot of data in it and want to save that data. I am not able to get on to the icons screen. When I called HP they are charging $ 27 for this. I am not finding it worthful. Please help me out.

Do you have any means to backup your drive?.. blank cd's/dvd's, hard drive, etc?..

But, before you do anything, have you tried doing a system defragmentation? If not, try that 1st.

Also, what are the exact issues you're having? The reason I ask is that I'm sure you'd rather fix what may be wrong instead of completely reformatting your hard drive.

A non-destructive system recovery should not format your drive. BUT, I'm not real familiar with the HP recovery software - read the descriptions carefully!

The first priority, no matter what restore option you choose, should be to backup your data.

Then, a full recovery will reset the system (and will delete your data). If you run a non-destructive system recovery, you'll likely retain your data - BUT, should anything go wrong, you may lose your data - so the backup is advisable.
