How the SWM files eneded up in "Recycle Bin" ?. Is it already there when you explored the partition first time ?. Is there any other WIM/SWM file which is bigger than 1 GB ?.

Please try the below steps.

1. Download and install "Partition Guru" from http://www.eassos.com/partitionguru.php

2. Install the tool and open it. Unlike "Partition Wizard", "PartitionGuru" will let us copy files from hidden partitions. Now create a folder in one of the empty data partition - preferable named "Recovery". Then copy asus.swm, asus2.swm,asus3.swm and asus4.swm to the "Recovery" folder.

http://www.partitionguru.com/manual/...mPartition.php

3. Open an elevated "Command Prompt" and type the below command exactly.

dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:e:\Recovery\asus.swm

(assuming the SWM files are stored inside "E:\Recovery" folder ).

Let us know the result with next reply.

Hi

Usually the recovery image will contain the necessary drivers required for the system. However it won't hurt to copy that wim file too.

On a later thought, please execute the below command after the first one.

dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:e:\Recovery\asus.swm >e:\wiminfo.txt

This will create a file named "wiminfo.txt" in E drive. Please attach that file along with the screenshot.
