Recovery Partition in Dell® Inspiron 580
How to delete recovery partition in Dell Inspiron 580?
One of the most useful tools in the new line of Dell desktop computers is the recovery partition in Dell Inspiron 580. It is a tool that can help recover the system without the use of a boot disk or a recovery disk. Using the recovery partition in a Dell computer is simple. Should the operating system fail, crash or if it is time to reinstall the operating system on your computer, simply press ‘CTRL+F11’ as soon as the PC restarts and the ‘C:’ drive will reformat itself. The operating system will automatically get loaded, restoring the computer to its condition when you first purchased it.

Checking the functionality of the recovery partition in Dell Inspiron 580
As a standard feature, Dell computers now come with two hidden partitions: a utility partition and a restore partition. The Dell System Restore is a feature that returns a computer to its “as-shipped” state, through the use of these two specialized partitions. To make sure that these partitions are in good working condition, the Dell Inspiron 580 is equipped with a DSRcheck tool as a part of the Dell PC-Restore partition.
Deleting the recovery partition in Dell Inspiron 580
The ‘Ctrl+F11’ process is a feature exclusive only to Dell products. This allows the user to simply restore their computer system into the state it was in when it was first shipped out of the warehouse. Not all users prefer to use to use or are aware of the automatic restoration process; some of them opt to use other methods. If the computer is restored using a boot manager, using the commands “fixmbr” or “fdisk/mbr” or using the Windows® Installation disk, then the ‘Ctrl+F11’ feature will be broken and cannot be used by the user if in case he or she needs to restore the system in its former state. Other ways which can damage the ‘Ctrl+F11’ process are adding, deleting or resizing the partitions in the original system. If the partitions were changed, the recovery process will fail and the system will have to abort the process.
There are many programs that can help restore a computer system. Some Dell owners delete the recovery partition in Dell Inspiron 580 and choose another method of recovery. Though this is an accepted way of recovering the computer system (by using cloning/imaging products like Symantec Ghost, PowerQuest Drive Image, Acronis True Image, TeraByte Image or BootIt-N among other brands), deleting the recovery partition will break the ‘Ctrl+F11’ thus making the recovery system unusable.
