I found a listing on the Acer Website - you have a hidden partition.Here is a link to download the instructions on how to use the recovery partition.http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com/us&siteid=7293&areaid=7&formid=3425#resultsIf you have not burned the recovery discs, I STRONGLY recommend you do so before anything else. You may need them at sometime in the future, so put them in a safe place, and remember where they are. Without them, if the HD encounters a serious problem, you will have to purcase a new copy of Windows. There have been numerous threads recently on recovering PC's. Those with recovery discs are the easiest and cheapest to restore. The others have spend money on new system discs. The recover partition is not as secure a location for the recovey system, just more convenient.
