Re: Files and Setting Transfer Problem
Doubt if any files are being copied to the restore partition ("D"?). The
recovery partition is not accessible for protective reasons. HP does
provide a utility to copy the restore partition contents to removeable media
and an utility to remove the recovery partition.
When the recovery partition is created the MBR is modified to present the
"Hit the F11 Key.... " for recovery at bootup. Manually deleting the
partition does not remove the modification however the HP utility will do
