    Hi


    My sisters acer 5920 crashed at the weekend, and guess what, no recovery disk....... We can still the 10g recovery partition if i take the drive out and hock it to mys PC, but the main c drive got wiped out. Is they anyway to use the recovery partition on the hard drive to make the recovery disks?

    The recovery partition is meant to be used straight from the disk rather than burnt to DVDs, I think it's one of the F-keys on bootup but I don't remember which one.
