When the time comes for clean reinstall we can help with that.

@AddRAM I recently got a 10 pack of DVD-RW's, but I know how to reinstall W7 from scratch, I'm running my laptop from that right now. Maybe you're all right; a clean install is better. I made my own custom W7 Install DVD anyway.

Give that small partition a letter and then you can see what`s on it.

Okay it took me a while, but I found a pix of an L650 disk allocation, now it is a little smaller than yours, but the range on those L's went from 320 to 500GB Model Content Page

Here is that pix:

And every time I tried to find any kind of recovery media from Toshiba - Australia
It sent me back to here https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx The European site.
Where you can not pick Australia as your location.

From the US site Recovery media - Toshiba Forums
Quote:
Recovery media can be ordered online. Click here to begin the order process. There is no charge for the software itself, for which customers already own licenses, and as of 11/5/11 the shipping and handling charges for delivery of recovery media in the US is $29.95 for DVD media or $39.95 for USB sticks.
Shipping and handling charges for the following list of Latin American countries is $37.95 for DVD media or $47.95 for USB sticks:
But try as I might I can not find anything like that on the Europe or Ozzie sites

What is this '10.67 GB unallocated space' for? Is it the recovery partition? I heard that system recovery contains the whole OS and programs and stuff, which is about 10gb. What could this be for? I'm hoping it's the recovery partition, as I'm missing quite a few Toshiba programs that only come installed on the original system. Any help is appreciated! Oh yes, I should say, Merry Christmas !
Why did you delete the 10gb Recovery Partition in first place?

unallocated hard drive space
I have a 5610Z Acer Aspire with Windows 7 (32 bit). I pulled a very boneheaded move getting to upgrade from Vista. I deleted my D:drive (50 G). I back up to a 500 G external hard drive. Is there a way to add the 59G to C:drive where I could use the space. Thanks Brightlight864:o
