6 Things You Need to Know about Samsung Recovery Partition

Most Samsung laptops when purchased already come with a built-in Samsung recovery partition. However, it is often thought that if this partition is deleted, then there is no way to recover it. It just to be known that no accurate answer can be given, because if it cannot be recovered, then that is just a part of Samsung's security measure.

Part 1 How to create Samsung Recovery Partition


For most people, the process of creating Samsung Recovery Partition is unknown territory. By using few simple steps, this can be accomplished. Here’s how:

-The USB-HDD needs to be made the first boot device.

-Now, the Samsung Recovery Solution Admin Tool usb pen drive must be inserted in the laptop (or desktop, as the need arises).


-Booting should be done from USB.

-The process of Samsung Recovery Solution starts thereafter.

-The process of Samsung Recovery Solution starts thereafter.

-Next comes the option of clicking on ‘Initialize the Hard Disk Drive’.


-A confirmation needs to be given. So, ‘Yes’ must be clicked.

-There is a need to define the ‘Size of Recovery Area’ as 20 GB. Once done, ‘Next’ must be clicked.

-After doing that, ‘OK’ should be chosen. The partitioning can continue as usual.

-The process takes some time, so better to wait for few minutes

-After partitioning is complete, ‘Recovery Area Installation’ should be continued, followed by clicking on ‘OK’.

-A new window asks for ‘Continue Installation’. So choose ‘OK’.


-After waiting for few minutes, the ‘Recovery Environment’ will be installed

-Now, it might be asked if the MBR is required to be fixed. So click ‘OK’.

-After MBR fix is completed, ‘OK’ must be clicked.

-There can be a question if someone wants to add the initial status image to the recovery area from USB or DVD. It’s better to click ‘Cancel’. If backups are made, then click ‘OK’.

-Now, the Windows Installation Disc should be inserted and ‘OK’ clicked.


-Windows must be formatted and installed on the laptop.

-When the application runs, ‘Execute’ must be clicked on in Step 1 and Samsung Recovery Solution Application’ can be installed.

-The computer can be restarted and then system, backed up. Just by pressing F4, restoring is possible at the time of booting.

Part 2 How to access Samsung Recovery Partition

Accessing Samsung Recovery partition is just another part of the process that was created initially. There is a need to restore the system back to factory settings. Here’s how:

-Any data that needs to be stored well should have a backup prior to performing the factory restore, as it’s likely to delete all the major files, folders and programs installed in the laptop.

-Now, it’s better to start-up or re-boot the laptop.

-At the time of the start-up process, it is important to click the appropriate F key or key combination. For Samsung, F4 is the one. In case the keys fail to work, then the message in the screen can be searched for, acting as an indicator to start the recovery process. There can be instances when the recovery partition is absent in the laptop, so better to get in touch with the manufacturer.


-Instructions as explained on the screen about proceeding should be followed. It will take some time but a message might appear saying the restore is finished.

Part 3"If the RECOVERY partition is deleted, Samsung Recovery Solution will no longer function. Once deleted, there is no way to recreate the RECOVERY partition." Is that true?

Whether it is true or not or just a mere security measure or simply Samsung’s idea, is difficult to be said. But in few cases, it has been seen that while restoring recovery partition on another PC at the time of disc upgrading, there was no positive result. There must be something like Samsung support that can perhaps, pull one of the rut.

Part 4 How to Delete the Hidden Recovery Partition on Samsung laptop


In general, you can take to the following steps:

-Open the window of command prompt and type diskpart.

-Now enter the command ‘rescan’ and press the ‘enter’ key.


-Type in list disk and press enter.

-Now type ‘select disk 0’ and press enter.

-Type list partition and press enter key.


Select partition 3, delete the partition override, and apply.

Part 5 How to clone and restore the Samsung Recovery Partition

Restoring the Samsung Recovery Partition can be quite a painstaking job. Cloning the partition is a good choice. There is an array of disk cloning software systems used by many like Clonezilla, Ghost or Paragon, to name a few. After cloning, restoring and having everything working in much the same way can be expected.


Often, a question remains if the recovery partition is actually needed if the clone of the main partition is present. But that is difficult to determine.

Part 6If Samsung recovery partition does not work, what can be done?

If the system crashes, make sure you will have to reinstall the image from settings, which is a must.
