When I bought this new HP system it came with a C: drive and a D: drive and the D: drive is a recovery drive. How do I use this drive? When I try to open it a pop up comes up and says stuff like do not change and alter the files etc but does not let me in the drive. So how can you access it and use it?

This my be a dumb question but I have never had a recovery drive...

Hi Comrade General...

To access the recovery partition on most HP models, tap the F10 key during startup.
