I have an hp dv6t 3100 laptop and i recently had it's hard drive replaced at the service center...i had taken a copy of the recovery partition which was on the hdd to an external hard disk..i did not have any software which could take an image of the system and had to quickly copy the partition to my external hdd using the basic right click copy paste function..now i wanted to know how i can recover my laptop using the copy of the partition i made on the external hard disk...i do not have the hp recovery manager on my fresh install of windows 7 so i am not able to see any of the recovery contents as well...on properties it shows 18.5gb but when i open the folder it's blank... :cry:

from your post.. you created a backup of the recovery partition...that data gets you back to a brand new condition. it does not have your Data on it. You may or may not be able to use it. It would be best to create a system image now to help you out in the future.

If you are not able to get that to work, you can order Recovery Disk set from HP on their website for about $20 or so. However, as anonymous1 stated above, it won't have any data (pictures, documents, etc) that you had on there.
