HP Recovery Manager option of "Minimzed Image Recovery" and restoration of backed up files on extern

Product Name: Pavilion dm4-3050us
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

If I abandon my efforts to install the latest Windows 10 update, would it be a feasible and a good choice for me to command HP Recovery Manager to make the "Minimized Image Recovery" to the factory condition of OS (Windows 7 Home Edition) with drivers and select software? 

 

I have used HP Recovery Mgr to backup my files on an external hard drive.  Next question: How do I restore those files to my computer?  Should the restoration be done in Windows 7 or after I install Windows 10 on my computer?

Hi@3205,

 

Welcome to HP Support Forums. Best platform for all sorts of solutions, tips and tweaks to your questions/issues.

Information about the recovery. Is that right?

 

Thank you for sharing the issue details. I would like to help you.

 

Yes, you can run the “Minimized recovery” to reinstall the OS provided if the Windows 10 upgrade has not changed the recovery partition or even deleted it.

Restoring the backup files is easier with HP Recovery manager.

Once the OS is installed and the PC is up and running, use the recovery manager to restore the backup files from the Ext hard drive back on to the PC.

 

Hope this helps. Let me know for more.

 

Happy posting.
