    I recently bought a Satellite Pro L850-1UJ with Windows 8
    http://www.toshiba.co.uk/laptops/satellite-pro/l850/satellite-pro-l850-1uj/

    I've created a new partition (so i could use it as data room)
    i.e. C: the windows system AND Z: my data

    after that, i could NOT use the RECOVERY MEDIA CREATOR to create the recovery dvds
    BUT the partition still exists and i can see the inside files from windows

    IS IT a way to extract the files from the recovery partition or any other clue how i could fix the partition scheme so the RECOVERY MEDIA CREATOR could recognize it


    Many thanks for your time...

    After changing HDD partitions structure it happens that “Toshiba recovery media creator” cannot find recovery files. These files are marked with special markers that in your case cannot be found anymore.

    I’m afraid now is too late to do or change anything. You are not the first one with this problem. We always write here that first step should be recovery media creation and later you can do whatever you want. You can even delete it.

    Now you can just order new recovery disc at https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

    This was a mistake…
    The HDD partition table has been modified and changed which means that the Toshiba recover media creator would not find the essential files in order to create the Recovery disk or recovery USB flash memory stick.

    What you could try to do is to reset the notebook back to factory settings.
    For this you can use the option called Reset your PC.
    Details here:

    After that the partition table should be set to the same state like at the first day of purchase and you could try to create the recovery disk once again.

    Otherwise if this does not help you, the recovery disk could be ordered as mentioned by user xaver
