Sony® VAIO E Series Recovery Partition
Role and benefits of Sony VAIO E Series recovery partition
A recovery disk is a term for a media containing the backup of the original data of a computer as configured by an original manufacturer. This recovery disk allows the user to format the hard drive and re-install the operating system. After accepting some of the license agreements, the recovery program reformats the hard drive and copy the software or operating system to the system as it was on the initial start-up. Now almost all systems follow the hard drive partitions to store the recovery data. Since the data is directly on the hard drive, these types of partitions are faster than the CD-ROM recovery partition. No disk swapping is needed in hard drive partition. But it also has some drawbacks. If the hard drive fails, then the recovery partition would also fail. Since the recovery disk contains all the information about the system, the manufacturers would not produce the copy of these CDs. So if the disk is lost, then the reformatting would be never allowed. Alternatives for recovery CDs are boot disk and installation disk. Boot disc is used to boot the system and reinstall the software. While installation CDs are used to boot the system and then troubleshoot and remove the problems. After removing problems, the software would be re-installed.
