Active Recovery Partition

Toshiba Laptop with Win 7. 64gb SSD. 28gb used. 26gb free.

I have a 4.9gb Active Recovery Partition.

What is it?
Do I need it if I back up to a HDD using EaseUS ToDo and a docking station?

    How would I do that?
  3. There must have been instructions with it or a command file built in called system recovery. Cheaper than giving out DVD's with every computer they sell.

    I did create a set of recovery discs. Is this partition necessary to use these discs?

    Yes, that is where the installation files for the OS are.
