So, I'm a novice with computers, computing but this has me stymied.  I have a compaq cq62 laptop with windows 7 home premium on it.  I created the recovery disks when it was pretty new and set them aside.  Recently my hard drive failed.  I had everything backed up so I just attempted a system restore from the partition which didn't work due to the bad hard drive.  I then attempted the system recovery with the disks I had made and it looks like in making the disks one was corrupted.  Long story short I have a windows 7 disk and was able to reinstall 7, and get everything working, however I would like to have a recovery partition again just for future proofing.  Is there any way I can get the partition software in aftermarket?

Hi quibbley,


You can try these tutorials should help.






Now i never tried this before, since you lost your original recovery partition had to use the disc., you can just use the disc again. Unless you might be better of making a system image with a program like this
