    EDIT:
    Thanks to a recovery software I have saved the "HDD RECOVERY" folder an all the other files that were in D:(the damaged partition) into another folder in C:

    Now how can I burn a recovery cd/dvd starting by this folder ?


    --------------
    I've the Satellite A300-21w that came with a 320 GB HD splitted in 2 partitions: C: & D an Vista Home premium:
    The D: partition containing the "HDD RECOVERY" folder was accidentally damaged by me and now the system only view the C: partition !
    I've tried to run the Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator but it shows the message: can't find the "hdd recovery" folder.
    How can I reboot my laptop?

    To burn the recovery disk you need the Toshiba Recovery Disk Creator.
    This program is preinstalled on your notebook from the Toshiba image.

    But therefore the HDDRecovery folder must be on drive D as far as I know. Otherwise itís not possible.

    So you must create a D partition again. Maybe it works.
