Windows related, with few bad sectors. I let Fiona continue with this topic.

It's a good idea.I've copied the HDDRecovery hidden partition to another hard drive (I made a partition on an old storage drive).
Thanks! I really don't know about the Windows RE(store) partition. I know it's not "hidden". I also know that I attempted to restore the computer to "factory settings" software, and I used the HDDRecovery partition, and it went an hour or two through the process before quitting (had installed maybe 7 or 8 out of 42 of things from Toshiba, I think).Fiona wrote:But you have 2 pretty similar partitions.
The first one is a Windows RE(stor)-partition and it might be also possible that this partition contains your data (backup) to start your netbook from a scratch.
Would it be possible that your HDDRecovery hidden partition would be a normal Backup?
Would it be possible to refer to the manual, what both partitions mean?
So you'll able to determine, which partition should be used for a recovery and in case to backup the other partition Windows RE also!
Did you clone that partition or did you create an image.
If you cloned the disk, did you use another 2.5 inch disk, so in case you could use it as a replacement?
There are always reasons if I require screens!I don't understand why you still say you need the screen shots.
netbook (no DVD/CD drive!)
You have a 2.5 inch HDD, geometry is different to your geometry in your USB enclosure, because USB protocol is different to a protocol of an internal harddrive controller from a notebook, laptop or netbook.(I borrowed a hard drive enclosure and can connect it via USB to my computer)
