\015\012Acer eRecovery Management
\015\012Acer eRecovery Management is a tool to quickly backup and restore the system.
\015\012You can create and save a backup of the current system configuration to hard
\015\012disk, CD or DVD. You can also backup/restore the factory default image, and
\015\012reinstall applications and drivers.
\015\012
\015\012Acer eRecovery Management consists of the following functions:
\015\012
\015\0121 Create backup
\015\0122 Burn backup disc
\015\0123 Restore and recovery
\015\012
\015\012This chapter will guide you through each process.
\015\012Note: This feature is only available on certain models. For systems
\015\012that do not have a built-in optical disc burner, plug in an external
\015\012optical disc burner before entering Acer eRecovery Management
\015\012for optical disc-related tasks.
\015\012
\015\012When using Acer eRecovery Management, you may be prompted to enter the
\015\012Empowering Technology password to proceed. The Empowering Technology
\015\012password is set using the Empowering Technology toolbar or when first running
\015\012Acer eLock Management or Acer eRecovery Management.
\015\012
\015\012Create backup
\015\012
\015\012You can easily create full and fast (incremental) backup images of your system
\015\012configuration to hard disk from the main Acer eRecovery Management screen.
\015\012Note: Fast (incremental) Backup is only available after a Full
\015\012Backup is made.
\015\012
\015\0121 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
\015\012Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
\015\0122 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select the type of backup you
\015\012want to create using Full or Fast.
\015\0123 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

\015\012Burn backup disc
\015\012Using the Burn Disc page of Acer eRecovery Management, you can burn the
\015\012factory default image, a user backup image, the current system configuration,
\015\012or an application backup image to CD or DVD.
\015\0121 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
\015\012Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
\015\0122 Switch to the Burn Disc page by selecting the Burn Disc button.
\015\0123 Select the type of backup (factory default, user, current system,
\015\012application) you would like to burn to disc. Choosing to burn a user backup
\015\012will burn your most recently created backup image to disc.
\015\0124 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.
\015\012Note: Create a factory default image when you want to burn a
\015\012bootable disc that contains your computer's entire operating
\015\012system as it was delivered to you from the factory. If you wish to
\015\012have a disc that will allow you to browse the contents and install
\015\012selected drivers and applications, create an application backup
\015\012image instead — this disc will not be bootable.
\015\012
\015\012Restore and recovery
\015\012
\015\012The restore and recovery features allow you to restore or recover the system
\015\012from a factory default image, from a user created image, or from previously
\015\012created CD and DVD backups. You can also reinstall applications and drivers for
\015\012your Acer system.
\015\0121 Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the
\015\012Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management.
\015\0122 Switch to the restore and recovery page by selecting the Restore button.
\015\0123 Select the backup point you would like to restore from. You can also
\015\012choose to recover the system from a factory default image, recover from a
\015\012previously created CD/DVD or reinstall applications and drivers.
\015\0124 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.
