Re: Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Factory Restore

All Dell Mini 10's come with factory restore partition.  XP versions use the CTRL F11 which I've had issues with unless using USB keyboard.  And F8 recovery for Vista and Windows 7.  However if you upgraded the windows from the original version the factory restore may no longer work.  There are ways to repair this for XP using DSRfix.  The New Dell Datasafe partition is encrypted and is usually lost when upgrading unless recovery media was made BEFORE doing any updates.  The Dell Datasafe recovery can restore the original Factory setup to a drive at least the same size as the original drive.
