How has it come to need 18.8 GB of DVD discs space to create a 'return to factory reset' using four DVDs? Just bought a HP G56-113SA and gone through the recovery manager and used four discs.
What a lot of bullshit. Four years ago a restore disc, with an awful lot more of advertising drivel, took one DVD disc. That's with Vista.
A lot less to uninstall, this time, but burning reset discs is taking the preverbial piss out of the consumer I think.
Win 7, home premium, 64 bit.
PS. again; the 16 GB recovery partition was the first thing to go.
I assume the discs are for all the extras paricular to to the make /model - drivers and all the unwanted rubbish etc, as well as Windows.
I recently bought 3 Acer machines - two laptops and an all in one desktop. It took ages to create the restore discs for all of them - four for each, and because I'm paranoid I made three sets for each machine. Twelve discs in all.
Whatever happened to the old fashioned supplied recovery discs. Surely it's not that much trouble to supply them. Even worth paying a bit more.
