Then I was looking for the recovery support on Toshiba's website. They said there is a set of Recovery Media is sold ($30). And I have several questions about Disk Management


  1. What is the Volume which contain 1.46GB - Healthy ( Active Recovery Partition )?
  2. What is the Volume which contain 9.34GB - Healthy ( Primary Partition )?
  3. My (C:/) - I know it.

Does that 1.46GB Volume support for the set of Toshiba Recovery Media ? If I format and install a new OS with a Window disk, can I use that set after what I done?

What can I do with the 9.34GB Volume?

And why there is 3 Volumes on my laptop, but in fact, I just only see the 454.96GB Volume?

I don't have enough qualifications to answer those questions and your problem of creating Factory Default discs. Wait for the experts replies. Worse comes to worst, bite the bullet and cough up $30. It actually is a wise investment. It will save you from buying a new computer when disaster strikes.
One thing I can say ... 1.46 GB for Recovery Partition seems insufficient. There should be at least 10 - 15 GB.

Sorry I am of no help to you.

For you future reference, ( my own curiosity too )......
how about you asking the Toshiba tech about why the Recovery Partition is only 1.46GB, and what is the purpose of the other 9.34GB " primary partition ".
I have a feeling those are related to your failure to create factory default discs.

The supporter from Toshiba said that I can restore to its original out-of-the-box content by using that set Toshiba Recovery Media EVEN if I format & install a new OS on my laptop.

I'll try to make a disc from Tutorials of Sevenforums.com

Now my questions are solved. Thank again & agian
