    Regarding Windows Recovery Partition


    Hi guys, as you all know there is a bug in window system image backup restore which is made using windows's inbuilt backup utility. But somehow i managed to restore my SIB using a method mentioned in Microsoft community but that method works only to restore the C: drive from your SIB, so now i have a working machine with everything from that SIB expect the recovery and efi partition from old backup.

    And now if i try to reset my pc it says there was a problem resetting your pc and even i cannot use windows recovery because it asks me to login from a administration account which i already am. I think these issues are happening because i have a current system running without its original recovery partition.

    So the thing i want to know is that, is there a method or procedure from which i can replace the files in my current recovery partition with the original recovery partition that i have in the SIB that i created earlier using windows inbuilt backup utility.

    I once restored a recovery partition I accidently deleted from a Reflect backup which worked. You might need to run the command reagentc / enable from an admin command prompt.

    Would you mind sharing the instructions how you did it. I mean where you put the backed up recovery partation and other stuff. Thanks

    I used MiniTool Partition Wizard Free to shrink the C: system partition by 450Mb which is the size of my recovery partition. This left 450MB free space at the end of the drive which is the current recommended location for the recovery partition. I then restored the recovery partition to that free space from my Reflect backup.

    First try opening an admin command prompt and running reagentc /info and see if your recovery partition is activated.

    If not, try running reagentc /enable to enable it.

    If that fails, recreate your recovery partition using a copy of WinRE in C:\Windows\System32\Recovery, by following these instructions: Windows Defender Offline Scan in Windows 10 - Page 4 - Windows 10 Tutorials

    Ryan, if you have Win10 Pro 1709 16299.xxx installed, I can upload a copy of the WinRe for you.

    Yes i have the same window copy that you have mentioned. But just a question, by following the procedure you had mentioned in your previous post would i be able to rewrite the recovery partation i want to on top of the existing recovery partation?

    As long as you have the recovery partition and EFI partition, and they're the same windows version, another words 162999.xxx in this case, recovery just needs to be reactivated and relinked.

    If you are missing those two, then you need another solution.

    No need to re-write anything, just activating.

    That's ok then.
    Try the two reagent c commands first to see if that helps, if not here is a link to my copy of Winre on OneDrive(the file is 341MB so too large to upload to the forums): Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    Download the Winre.wim file
