Dear Classmates,

I've been getting calls from other classmates that their computer will not boot up, they may have gotten a virus.  Now they have to take their computer to an expert and pay to fix the computer. If you have a Recovery Drive on a USB thumb drive, you can restore your computer to the day you bought it. You lose all your files, like documents, photos, etc. that you put on it. Your Recovery Drive only works on your computer.

A recovery drive can help you troubleshoot and fix problems with your PC, even if it won’t start. To create one, all you need is a USB drive.

I just created one and it took over 30 minutes.

Go to Control Panel, click on Recovery, click on Create a recovery drive, click on Yes. Below are just the first 2  screens you will get. There are 3 more.


When it’s done, you might see a Delete the recovery partition from your PC link on the final screen. If you want to free up drive space on your PC, select the link and then select Delete. If not, select Finis
