Recovery partition in the ASUS® UL30Vt
What is the need of recovery partition in the ASUS UL30Vt?
A recovery partition is a program inside your computer that is a separate and a dedicated partition used for backup and recovery of system files and drivers in case the system becomes unstable. The recovery partition permits you to restore the ASUS UL30Vt to its original state if something happens and it gets unstable. In an attempt to reclaim additional space on the hard drive, some users want to remove the Recovery Manager and the recovery partition, but it is not recommended to do so.
If you really need to reclaim some of the storage space on the hard disk drive, it is recommended that you create the set of operating system recovery discs before making any changes, so if there is a hard drive failure, you can use the recovery discs to restore your ASUS UL30Vt to its original operating condition.

Launching the Recovery Manager
In order to launch the Recovery Manager from the recovery partition, it is essential for you to press the power button to start the ASUS UL30Vt and press and hold the F11 key. You will need to backup any files you want to save then follow the Recovery Manager instructions to save any important files before continuing with the recovery process. After all the files have been backed up to an external device, USB drive or CD and DVDs, select the option to perform a system recovery.
After launching the Recovery Manager
It is crucial to obtain and install updates for your ASUS UL30Vt. After your system reboots, use the ASUS update manager as well as Windows Updates to restore all critical updates in your ASUS UL30Vt. It is important to make a set of recovery discs. Use Recovery Manager and select "Advanced Options" to create a set of recovery discs that can be used in the event that the ASUS UL30Vt cannot access the hard drive.
As a safeguard make it a habit to backup your data often using Recovery Manager or other backup software to multiple sets of drives to avoid losing important files in the event of a system crash.
