Thank you for the response. Did you upgrade to Windows 8 or was it pre-installed in the system? Are you facing this issue only when installing Dell backup and recovery? Did you try to install any other software and faced the same error? Did you create partition on the computer? Please share a screenshot of the disk management?

Thank you for the response. The Dell Backup and Recovery should be pre-installed from the factory. Did you make any software or hardware changes to the computer? Did you uninstall Dell Backup and Recovery from the computer? Did you try to install any other software and facing the same issue?
Please reply with the results.
Once I purchased it, it kept crashing so I uninstalled it and been trying to reinstall it ever since. I have installed other software with no problems. (i.e. Paintshop Pro X5) plus others like garmin lifetime updater and some others all with no problems. This is all after I uninstalled Dell Backup and Recovery and been trying to reinstall. No hardware changes.
Thank you for the response. It appears that there might be some issues with the recovery partition. Usually, uninstalling or re-installing Dell Backup and Recovery does not create any problem. I would recommend you to 'Refresh' the system.
The Refresh option is primarily a repair method. It is a great method of returning your PC to a known good state while preserving your files and a great deal of your configuration. With the Refresh your PC option, user accounts, data files, and some settings are preserved on your PC without the need to create a backup, or to make choices about what to keep or remove.
Note: The apps that came with your PC or you installed from Windows Store will be re-installed, but any apps you installed from other websites and DVDs will be removed. You'll find a list of the removed apps on your desktop after refreshing your PC.
To Refresh Windows 8 please follow the steps mentioned below:
Once Refresh' is completed, try to install Dell Backup and Recovery again on the computer.
Hope this helps.
