    I just copied the contents to the OS drive,
    To copy the contents of the Recovery Partition, you had to change the partition ID, which would make the Recovery Partition unusable.

    You can call ASUS, but as your Recovery Partition is not usable, the app may not work.

    I think I found it (Asus Backtracker), but yeah, I don't think the partition is recoverable. Oh well, more storage space

    Thanks.

    Yeah that's what I downloaded. Haven't played with it yet, I'm in the middle of finishing off my final for my accounting class. Needed a break, so I'm here

    I am having a problem creating a USB recovery drive. The problem is the "copy contents....." box is greyed out.
    I created a Recovery Partition C:\RefreshImage and I want to copy this Recovery Partition to a USB bootable recovery drive. I formatted my Kingston 3.0 USB 32 gb using Fat32 (long format). The USB shows up in the explorer directory tree. I am running Win 8.1 Pro with all updates.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hello JM,

    The Copy contents from the recovery partition to the recovery drive box is grayed out since it is not a factory OEM recovery partition.
