I am on steps 8 and 9 but i have never saved anything there, unless stuff has saved there automatically, but i have no idea what would have. I have only had PC for 2/3 weeks.

 

So what do i delete?

 

The things there are:

 

RP

bootmgr

bootmgr.efi

FileHistory  -   (folder)

System Volume Information  -   (folder)

$RECYCLE.BIN  -   (folder)

Boot

EFI

preload

Recovery

Thanks

 What about this warning that contradicts what you are saying?

 

 

 caution:

Do not delete any files that are associated with system recovery! Do not delete the items: $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, EFI, Factory Update, preload, Recovery, RM_Reserve, system.sav, bootmgr, RMCStatus.bin, BT_HP.FLG, CSP.DAT, DeployRp, HP_WSD.dat, HPSF_Rep, language, or RPCONFIG! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.

Hi @jamesvandyk

 

Thanks for posting back.

 

Yes, there is a possibility that the recovery may not work after deleting these folders.

 

Have you created a recovery media for your computer? If not follow below steps to create one. In future, if the recovery partition doesn't work we can do the recovery using the recovery media.
