They really should inplant a CD recovery. It's restraining space that can be used.
actually that isn't the restore drive for the acer laptops, I really don't know why they cut the drive in half like that but every acer we sell comes partitioned like that, and if you go to manage there is actually a third partition that handles the recovery that is only a couple gigs.
