4-1 Xpress Recovery2
Chapter 4 Unique Features
Xpress Recovery2 is a utility that allows you to quickly compress and
back up your system data and perform restoration of it. Supporting NTFS,
FAT32, and FAT16 file systems, Xpress Recovery2 can back up data on
PATA and SATA hard drives and restore it.
Before You Begin:
• Xpress Recovery2 will check the first physical hard drive
for the operating system. Xpress Recovery2
can only back up/restore the first physical hard drive that has the operating system installed.
• As Xpress Recovery2 will save the backup file at the end of the hard drive, make sure to leave enough un-
allocated space in advanced (10 GB or more is recommended; actual size requirements vary, depending
on the amount of data).
• It is recommended to back up your system soon after the operating system and drivers are installed.
• The amount of data and hard drive access speed may affect the speed at which the data is backed up/
• It takes longer to back up a hard drive than to restore it.
• At least 512 MB of system memory
• VESA compatible graphics card
• Windows XP with SP1 or later, Windows Vista
• Xpress Recovery and Xpress Recovery2 are different utilities. For example, a backup file created
with Xpress Recovery cannot be restored using Xpress Recovery2.
• USB hard drives are not supported.
• Hard drives in RAID/AHCI mode are not supported.
Installation and Configuration:
Turn on your system to boot from the Windows Vista setup disk.
A. Installing Windows Vista and Partitioning the Hard Drive
(Note) Xpress Recovery2 checks the first physical hard drive in the following sequence: The first PATA IDE connector, the
second PATA IDE connector, the first SATA connector, the second SATA connector and so forth. For example, when
hard drives are attached to the first IDE and the first SATA connectors, the hard drive on the first IDE connector is
the first physical drive. When hard drives are attached to the first and second SATA connectors, the hard drive on
the first SATA connector is the first physical drive.
