Just purchased a refurbished Acer 605 desktop from Walmart, looks like it's brand new and the procedure I had to do after power up was like that of a brand new pc. I am trying to use the Acer Recovery Management to create a recovery flashdrive. I click on "Create Factory Default Backup" I am then presented with a screen titled "Create a Recovery Drive" with some text but the selection for "copy the recovery partition from the PC to the recovery drive" is greyed out and is not selectable. The instructions indicate that this box needs to be check. Without that info what gets put on the usb stick is worthless.
If I look in the Disk Management window I can see a 15.96GB partition labeled "Healthy (Recovery Partition). I am big into backups and don't want to proceed with using this machine without a viable way to get back to the disk drives original image.
Anyone have any ideas on how to get a viable backup image?
