Acer eRecovery Management

Acer eRecovery Management is a tool to quickly restore the system. You can back up/restore the factory default image, and reinstall applications and drivers.

NOTE: All of the following content is for general reference only. Actual product specifications may vary. Acer eRecovery Management consists of the following functions:

1. Backup:

  • Create Factory Default Disc
  • Create Drivers and Applications Disc

2. Restore:

  • Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults
  • Restore Operating System and Retain User Data
  • Reinstall Drivers or Applications

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.

To use the password protection feature of Acer eRecovery Management, you must first set the password. The password is set by launching Acer eRecovery Management and clicking Settings.

  1. Select the type of backup (factory default or drivers and applications) you would like to burn to disc.
  2. Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

NOTE: Create a factory default image when you want to burn a bootable disc that contains your computer's entire operating system as it was delivered to you from the factory. If you wish to have a disc that will allow you to browse the contents and install selected drivers and applications, create a drivers and application backup instead — this disc will not be bootable.
