New Laptop

Have just been looking at a mate's new Laptop  Lenovo G570 with the following facility,
Lenovo OneKey Rescue System 7.0 function description
Lenovo OneKey Rescue System 7.0 includes two parts:
Part A: OneKey Rescue System (Press Novo button to log in under shutdown state)
Part B: OneKey Recovery (Software under Windows)
Besides backing up and restoring system, the software also provides many useful functions.
Is this just a quick way into windows system restore or is it a specific piece of software only available on these laptops ?

I think it's just a fancy marketing name for the option to reset to factory settings and lose all your data.

I thought it sounded too good, however if you have kept stuff on an external disk I guess it could be a useful facility for anyone with minimal knowledge to be up and running fairly quickly following some problem that prevented the computer from booting up correctly.

Re: New Laptop

No for that you can boot to Start-Up Repair mode and run System Restore.  A factory reset is really the option of last resort because you have to re-install your security software, printer, all those Microsoft updates so it's quite a lengthy business even if you know your away around a computer.
