- Using recovery partition
The partition created in the hard disk drive to store system recovery files containing the important system data is called recovery partition. The recover partition is used for the system recovery process at the time of critical system failures. The recovery partitions are used to run the system recovery process instead of using recovery disks. Recovery partition stores the image of the system such as the operating system files, registry, driver files and application software.
The role and benefits
The basic role of the recovery partition in Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 is to recover system data at the time of critical system issues. Main benefits of the recovery partition over the use of recovery CD/DVD is that it provides quick system recovery process as compared to the system recovery using recovery CD/DVD. Quicker recovery process can be done using the recovery partition. It is because the recovery files are readily available in the hard disk and there is no disk swapping needed.
Recover partitions need to be run only at critical system errors or failures. If your Lenovo ThinkPad SL510 encounters any critical system failures or errors, you can run the recovery partition in order to recover the favored system condition. To fix the system issues, press ‘F11’ key at the time of system startup to run the recovery process using the recovery partition.
