  4. If drive E is was just a partition on the same drive as your boot drive, and not a physically separate hard drive, Factory Recovery may have overwritten the entire drive by creating new partitions and therefore wiping out all the old partitions.

    That's what the Factory Recovery does on my Toshiba laptop. It erases ALL the existing partitions (3 of them) and creates 3 new ones.

    The above methods does provide a solution. However, I personally do not trust the restore and recover option of the Windows. There are many restore and recovery software out there, although only a few provide some really good functions and are effective and reliable. Do try to use some of the third-party restore and disaster recovery solutions, they can be mighty useful :)

    SpectorH85 - You certainly do have a very good point there, the biggest problem with restoring using the recovery partition is you get all the junk programs (bloatware) put back on the pc.

    I have recommended some of our customer to Purchase a Program Called Rollback Rx
    which I use My self Personally. Its a Instant system PC restore Program where is restores your PC to a previous state within seconds. It has Worked Great for me and so far for every customer i have Recommended it to.

    Which 3rd party recovery softwares are you reffering to Spector?



    I never heard of Rollback. I have used Comodo Time Machine and Clean Slate, although now those did become ineffective and incompatible with Windows 7 and 8. I am looking for a good alternative. I guess I will do my research on RollBack. What is your opinion on it?
