 I am using Lenovo notebook pc and facing some issues while operating system installation. There is a drive in my laptop, which is named as “Recovery Drive” (factory setting) but I am not able to access that drive. Every time I try to access any file or folder in that drive it gives me an error saying” Drive not authorized”. How can I use that drive for my purpose or take a backup of this drive?

It is not possible to access Recovery drive, since it is a windows system drive. The memory used by recovery drive is about 100MB.

Back up the data

Solution 1:

If you want to take windows back up you need either an external HDD (Hard Disk Drive) or an USB or DVD to take the back up.

Go to START -> windows back up.

Solution 2:

• If you want to take windows back up to the internal HDD (Hard Disk Drive), download and install ‘ACRONYS’ software. We can take back up of any drive by using this software.

• While taking the backup makes sure that the recovery drive and system local drive are selected.

Note: If we want to take any windows system back up better way to select windows recovery drive and windows OS drive.

By default, Microsoft Windows 7 creates two partitions during setup. The first partition is a small partition around 100 MB or you can make it bigger. This is called the system partition and is used for BitLocker and for restoring Windows. The second partition is the one where Windows 7 will be installed and this is big.

The second partition should be big enough to contain the Windows 7 operating system and the applications you will be installing. And of course, you can modify the size of the partition even after installing the operating system if you still have available space in your hard drive.

Just like with the “System Volume Information” folder located in the root of every drive, the 100 MB system partition may not be accessible to users.
