VAIO Care Rescue for more information.
What is a recovery area?
The recovery area on the built-in storage device
contains data for system and application
recovery. Typically, you cannot modify or delete
data in this area, however, there is commercially
available software designed for this purpose.
Why do I have to create Recovery
Media?
Recovery Media are used to restore your
computer back to its original factory condition.
If Windows does not start and you have deleted
the recovery area, you will need the Recovery
Media to perform recovery. Create the Recovery
Media immediately after the computer is ready
for use.
About backup
What is a backup process?
The backup process creates a backup copy of
your data stored on the built-in storage device
and saves it to another location.
Why do I have to back up my data?
Due to unexpected events or computer viruses,
you might lose various data stored on your built-
in storage device. To restore the lost data, its
backup copy is needed.
It is strongly recommended that you back up
your data regularly.
You cannot use Blu-ray Disc™ media,
DVD-RAM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs as
Recovery Media.
You can use optical discs and a USB flash drive as
Recovery Media. However, it is recommended
that you use optical discs, such as DVD-R, since
you may accidentally delete the data on the USB
flash drive.
The number of necessary discs, the types of
media you can use, and the capacity of the USB
flash drive you need will be displayed during the
