I have recently acquired a new Toshiba laptop. The HDD is divided into: C drive D drive (Data) SYSTEM RESERVED (not sure what this means - only viewable in defragmenter) Q drive (Office 2010 Click to run (protected)) E drive (DVD) The D drive has the files: HDD Recovery R16067NH.tag I was advised to hide the files, but this makes no sense to me as a user might format the D drive and hey presto, no recovery files. These files are accessible through F8 options on boot, should the user not have their recovery disk. I am looking at protecting these files from accidental deletion but still keeping them visible to the user in the D drive. Any ideas?
