Acer eRecovery Management

Acer eRecovery Management is a tool to quickly backup and restore the system. 
You can create and save a backup of the current system configuration to hard 
disk, CD or DVD. You can also backup/restore the factory default image, and 
reinstall applications and drivers.

Acer eRecovery Management consists of the following functions:

Create backup


Burn backup disc


Restore and recovery

This chapter will guide you through each process.

Note: This feature is only available on certain models. For systems 
that do not have a built-in optical disc burner, plug in an external  
optical disc burner before entering Acer eRecovery Management 
for optical disc-related tasks.

When using Acer eRecovery Management, you may be prompted to enter the 
Empowering Technology password to proceed. The  Empowering Technology 
password is set using the Empowering Technology toolbar or when first running 
Acer eLock Management or Acer eRecovery Management.

Create backup

You can easily create full and fast (incremental) backup images of your system 
configuration to hard disk from the main Acer eRecovery Management screen.

Note: Fast (incremental) Backup is only available after a Full 
Backup is made.


Press <Alt> + <F10> or select Acer eRecovery Management from the 
Empowering Technology toolbar to start Acer eRecovery Management. 


In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select the type of backup you 
want to create using Full or Fast.
