    How to backup recovery partition (ASUS)


    Hi
    I bought a new computer (ASUS X555L) and i need to format disk to kill all the bloatware (install from original dvd not OEM).
    One thing i do when i get a new computer is to delete the recovery partition to get more space to storage files.
    But now i think that it will be usefull to make a backup of that partition and store in another disk (external hdd for example)
    Any Ideas?

    Type Recovery on the start screen. That brings up the recovery device creator (Create a recovery drive). Follow the wizard. Best is to use a USB stick. Check the size of the recovery partition for right size of the stick.

    Btw - deleting the recovery partition makes you lose some function - e.g. refresh via F9.

    I never tried that but I guess that's possible. But why don't you burn your recovery stick (that's always a good idea) and leave the recovery partition where it is.
