This is how to make a 2nd set of recovery disks.

HP Recommended

Recovery disk creation only allows you to make 1 set.

This is how to make a 2nd set of recovery disks. should you mess up the 1st time doing them, purchased a used notebook and the owner didnt supply you with them, if you loose them or they get damaged.

 

 

1) Delete the file RMCStatus.bin (hidden) from two places:

  •   C:\Program Files(x86)\Hewlett-Packard\Recovery Manager\
  •   The root of a drive D:\ (RECOVERY partition)

 2) Remove Rebecca.dat ( hidden) from:

  • C:\Windows\System32\

 

Follow the instructions here:

HP Recovery Disk/USB Creation Instructions

In order to find the files to be deleted, you must change your folder options to show hidden files and drives. Type folder options in search to bring it up.

This varies from system to system depending on the version of recovery manager ans OS used to make the discs, I have a collection of methods over the years, thanks I will add it to my collection.
