    Hello.

    Windows 8 overs the option to write a Recovery on USB drive for Reset,Restore etc.
    Toshiba comes with the Recovery media Creator .

    Is there any difference between those two ? Do i need to do the Recovery that windows 8 provides
    but also use Toshibas software to create the Recovery disks ?

    Thank you in advance.

    Every Toshiba notebook offered with preinstalled operating system is preinstalled with Toshiba recovery image. This recovery image is created by Toshiba and it is created for certain notebook model.
    With other words created recovery image is created for each notebook model with specific hardware platform. Such recovery image contains operating system, all necessary drivers for certain platform and Toshiba specific tools and utilities.

    This recovery image is saved on HDD. Using preinstalled Toshiba recovery creator you will create bootable recovery media and using this media you will be able to install this recovery image on HDD. After recovery media installation you will have “factory settings” again.
    This recovery media can be used if there is some problem to start HDD recovery installation, in case when HDD is defective and you need new one or if you make HDD upgrade.

    This recovery image has nothing to do with any Windows option. It is Toshiba specific solution for notebook owners.
