Re: Recovery (D): What is it?
it's an operating system image backup drive in case your computer is messed
up and you like to restore your computer back to original state just like
when you first brought the computer home. I suggest you leave it alone.
In order to use it in case your system out of the blue decide not to work or
boot up. Just power it up and there usually be a function for you to choose
if you want to restore your operating system. I don't know what key you
have to press, it's different for each vendor.
