About Acer hard drive recovery in Windows

Acer hard drive recovery is the process of restoring an Acer operating system using a recovery partition or recovery discs. The recovery discs can be Acer recovery disk, Acer recovery CD/DVD, or Acer recovery USB, and at least one of them should be created when you initially receive your system.

Acer has a utility named Acer eRecovery Management. Users may quickly make a recovery CD and restore their data. If you are unable to generate one, you can obtain an Acer recovery CD from the help center. Furthermore, ordering recovery devices from the Acer Store, which needs entering your serial number or SNID, is a good idea.

Use Acer eRecovery Management

Acer eRecovery Management is a program developed by Acer's software team that allows you to do an Acer desktop and Acer laptop hard drive recovery. It can recover the PC and hard drive to its factory default condition using an image saved in a hidden partition on a hard drive. It also includes an easy-to-use feature for backing up your system and data as an image to a hard drive or optical disks.

If you’ve already created an image of your disk or system you can follow the steps to restore it. But if you’re just planning to create a recovery image to restore your PC in the future when it crashes, you can follow the steps at the beginning.

Step 1. Launch Acer eRecovery Management by pressing “Alt”+ “F10” during the boot-up process, or at any time when you are running OS to open the main page.

Step 2. After you type your password and enter the tool, it will guide you to burn the factory image to disk.

Then you can create a backup image with the tool.

If you’ve already had an image, you can restore your PC when you need.

Step 1. Click on “Recovery actions”.


Step 2. You are presented with a list of available options.


Then you can choose one option according to your situation to restore your PC.

▶ Acer eRecovery Management allows users to do:

• System recovery: Restore the computer to the last image users created.

• Restore factory default image: Users can return their computer to its original settings in this way. All of your data and any apps you installed will be gone. When a user indicates that he wants to proceed, the machine will reboot and begin restoring the system from the image in the secret partition.

• Restore C: drive: This option allows the user to restore to the most recent recovery image he made. However, this option is only available if the picture is saved on a device formatted with the FAT32 file system. If the partition was converted to NTFS or there's no recovery image, the choice is greyed out.

• Recover system from CD/DVD backup: If you select to restore from a CD/DVD image, the BIOS will be modified to boot from the optical drive.
