Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad A31 Notebook ?

Non Destructive recovery

\015 Thank you for that, scary thing reformatting the HD even with a mirror image on the external drive.\015\012\015\012Its been a while since I've been in the original shipping box but isn't there a non-destructive system recovery disk that will set the operating system back to out of the box without reformatting and reloading all the programs and data files?\015\012\015\012Would there be harm in just deleting the $NtUninstallKB... folders from the WINNT folder\015\012\015\012Thanks.\015

Answers :

Recovery discs are wonderful things aren't they? Most people lose or damage their disc and don't have it when it's needed. I would recommend making a copy or disc image on the hard drive of the recovery disc just in case. Glad I could help, if you need anything else just let me know.
