Access HP Restore Partition
Posted on 2013-01-11
I have an HP Pavilion DV7 that I'm planning on doing a restore of soon. I'm trying to take a current image using Windows 7 Backup and Restore but it keeps failing. I'm pretty sure it's successfully backing up all of my main drive (c:) but it's failing when it gets to the HP restore parition. I'm unable to view anything on this drive, I just get a warning that it's the restore partiton and not to change anything.
Could this be what is causing the image creation to fail?
Is there a way to get access to this partition?
The backup is going to an external hard drive.
