    Theog, I don't think I understand. Does the "Support DVD" only exist for the Asus EEE series? I have a new X202E Q200e laptop with Windows 8. I don't see any such DVD for that. Sorry if I'm missing something. As for awindowsdummy's post about a "windows program", I can't figure out what that means either. Thanks for your help.

    For ASUS OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app, would check with ASUS support.

    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the ASUS OEM manufacturer's website.

    The Essentio Recovery Software link seems to say that's only for an "Essentio Desktop". But maybe I'm missing something about laptops and other models.

    My Asus VivoBook q200e had the beginnings of a hard drive failure.
    The 'Recovery Drive' option in Windows 8 never worked for me, so after much searching I found the Asus Backtracker utility that successfully copied recovery partition info to a 16GB flash drive and allowed me to restore that Windows8 recovery partition and OS partition to a replacement HDD.
    A search of Asus' web site for "Backtracker" reveals nothing, but a startpage.com search revealed this link:

    There are 32 and 64bit versions, and it worked on my 500GB (old and new) drive, so hopefully it will work for you too.
