Considerations when using the Recovery partition in Sony VAIO E Series.

Sony VAIO offers recovery disks when they ship their desktop, laptop or netbooks. The recovery disk is a very impotrant tool for computer owners. By 2005 the recovery CD was replaced by a hidden Recovery partition inside the Sony Vaio E Series. The partition can be accessed when you boot using the BIOS and it is also accessible in Windows using the Utilities. You can press ‘F10′ repeatedly to boot the laptop to the recovery partition.

Recovery partition is a very important tool that can save you a lot of time and money. Here are some of the reasons why:
  • Role of Recovery partition
  • Ways to use Recovery partition
  • Other concerns

Role of Recovery partition

The recovery partition contains an image copy of the original factory settings of E Series. When you experience a massive virus attack, a problem regarding the system and the system components or the device starts to show signs of wearing down, the recovery partition can be used. When you first run , you will already be prompted to make a set of recovery disks. This is extremely important because if you do not have a copy when a system crash comes along, you might have a difficult time addressing the problem.

Ways to use Recovery partition

All you have to do is follow the instructions in making the recovery partition when you first open Sony VAIO . Be ready with a set of disks that you will need. You can use DVDs if you want. Once the DVD finishes and is ejected, label it accordingly so you will not get confused with the sequence, if you need to use the disks. Just pop the disks when you boot the device and it will run the recovery program. If you want to boot from the partition from inside the Sony VAIO E Series, you can click on ‘F10′ multiple times.

Other concerns

When you use the recovery partition, the only thing that is left is the original factory setting of the laptop. This means that all the settings and files you have will be deleted. Make a backup of your files and folders to make sure that when you restore back to the original settings, you can easily restart again since you have all the files and settings you need.
