    Two Hard Drives - And One Of Them Survives Restore

    WOW! Yesterday, i was tired of my Acer working so slow. It is only a year old, with 2 GB 2.2 Ghtz and 160 GB so i thought i'd save the stuff i need and then "Restore to factory settings". Well, before i did that, i happened to notice i could save to the "D" drive (80 GB on it) . So i saved a few files to it just on a whim, and after performing a full factory restore my C Drive was fully cleaned but my "D" drive still had the files i saved on it. I am loving that and want to know "what do you call the ability to do that, so i can buy a new Desktop with Vista on it, or is that feature only available on Acer Computers, and do they come that way (with two fully loaded writable "D" drives with tons of memory on them that will withstand a FULL FACTORY RESTORE) when loaded with a Vista OS?

    I believe that the data backup partition (aka the D: partition) is a feature of Acer computers. Take a look at this forum.

    It's been my experience that the "data backup partition (aka the D: partition)" is being used by most (if not all) pc manufacturers. They are now using the D partition in place of packaging DVD's of the OS installation. <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15>
