Hi folks, I need to restore my  Emachines T3616 but I don't have the factory sent discs.  I noticed that there is a Recovery folder in another partition in the Hard Drive.  Please help!  Thanks

Most new PCs come with a recovery partition instead of a disk, and to access this you normally have to push a button when the PC starts something like F11 for emachines, this will reimage the machine back to how you got it when you first brought it.

...make sure you back up all your data before you run this...
