Have you accidentally deleted the dedicated recovery partition on your Windows PC and want to create the same again? Do you want to create a new recovery partition on your PC after installing and customizing Windows? If you are here in search of an easy-to-use and “working” software to create a dedicated recovery partition, you have come to the right place.
AOMEI OneKey Recovery is free utility available to create custom recovery partition on your PC with a few mouse clicks.
The ease with which OneKey Recovery creates dedicated recovery partition is simply brilliant. Even the novice users can use this software with ease. You neither need to partition your hard drive (if you have unpartitioned space) nor change the default boot settings. OneKey Recovery takes care of everything from creating recovery partition to adding OneKey Recovery options to the boot menu.
All you need is a free partition on your hard drive with enough space or unpartitioned space in order to create the recovery partition. OneKey Recovery automatically calculates the amount of free space required to setup the recovery partition and creates a partition out of unpartitioned space.
After selecting a partition to use as recovery partition, it automatically creates image of your system drive. This process might few minutes to hours depending on the size of your system drive and PC’s hardware. On our PC, it took close to an hour to complete the job.
Note that the required free space is approximately same as the total used space on the Windows drive. If you don’t have a free partition or unpartitioned space you need to free up a drive by moving data to other partitions or backing up data to an external drive.
If you don’t have free space on your internet drive, you can use a USB flash or hard drive for the job. In simple words, the recovery partition will be on your USB drive and you need to connect the same to your PC while resetting or restoring your PC using OneKey Recovery.
Once the recovery partition is ready, OneKey will automatically add the boot menu to your PC. You can even add “Press A for OneKey Recovery” message to the boot menu.
In the event of system failure, you just need to press A key to start the OneKey Recovery and restore the previously created image of Windows. And if your PC supports UEFI, the “Press A key for OneKey Recovery” might not work. You need to select AOMEI OneKey Recovery option in the boot menu to begin the recovery.
All in all, AOMEI OneKey Recovery is probably the only free utility out there to create custom recovery partition of Windows. If you often need to re-install Windows operating system, creating a dedicated recovery partition is the best thing you can do to save some frustration and hours of time.
