It is true that the Recovery Partition never changes. The function of the recovery Partition is to return the computer to factory shipped state.
As you've mentioned that you will use Norton Ghost to restore the computer. Deleting or making changes to the recovery partition will cause instability to the recovery partition and you may not be able to restore the computer to factory setting in the future. I would suggest you to create the Recovery Disc for future use.
Thanks and Regards,
I have a new Dell 15r (5521) running Windows 7 Home Premium 64.
There are 3 partitions .... a Dell Utility (name hidden), OS (C:) and RECOVERY.
The RECOVERY is System Active.
I use Norton Ghost 15.0 and need to restore my PC. I messed it up and a Ghost Restore would be easiest.
Ghost automatically backs up RECOVERY and OS(C:) at the same time into 2 different files.
The Ghost help boards say to just restore the OS(C:) as the RECOVERY partition never changes. Is that true?
Any other thoughts on Ghost and/or restoring my PC?
