It's Acer's clear.fi media suite. Acer clearfi It's pretty cool actually. It's a standard .exe setup only all the files in the folder are needed for proper setup. Have you ever had any security issues with doing that? Because a hack is exactly what I'm afraid of lol.

Set a System Restore Point - Create

Apportion as much HD space as you can afford for System Protection so the Restore Points last longer: System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage

I understand that you want to share this piece of OEM software you were able to extract but I doubt if the Forums will host it since as I pointed out earlier it may run afoul of copyright if deemed to be published.

However your posts here and elsewhere about how you were able to extract it will be found via Google and used by others who also own a copy because they bought that model PC and can also access Recovery.

Please do not post copywrite material that you have no rights to distribute on our site.

I have now removed the post so could you please read the site rules and note that piracy usually calls for an instant ban - Windows 7 Forums - Forum Rules

Oops. The Acer website doesn't say anything about not ditributing it. From what I read, it's free for anyone. The only thing you'll need is the proper hardware. Some non-Acer computers, laptops & devices have the proper built-in hardware enabling them to handle the software.

A site owner must use an abundance of caution when publishing someone else's work, especially software. What seems like harmless sharing between licensees desiring a Clean Reinstall might be viewed by the author as mass publishing of his work resulting in legal action.

Guess I never thought of it that way. I don't why they won't just mainstream it anyway. It's a damn delightful app.
