Backup / Restore
1. Backing up onto an external storage device
The following procedures are to save the current status of the
computer onto an external storage device.
For models with a small storage device (64GB SSD), the restoration
image is not saved on the computer.
Therefore, if you backup a restoration image onto a separate
external storage device (e.g. USB-type HDD, USB memory device,
SD card, etc.) that can be used to restore your computer to its
initial state, you can easily restore your computer when a problem
occurs.
Please complete the following procedures for restoring an image

partitioning, it cannot be resized. Partition the disk carefully.
Optional functions such as Initial State Image, Initial Status Backup,
and Partitioning are only available in some models.
Partition Setup & Initial Status Backup (Optional)

Recovery Solution Representation (Optional)
What is a Recovery Area?
•• Samsung computers have an additional partition to recover
computers or save backup files.
(Only for models with the Samsung Recovery Solution.)
This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a recovery
image that comprises of the OS and application programs.
•• You can either double-click the Samsung Recovery Solution icon
on the desktop or press F4 while booting the computer to enter
the Recovery Area. Then you can back up the present computer
state or recover the computer from backed up images.
•• For deleting the Recovery Area, you need to use an additional
Recovery Area Removal Tool. After deleting the recovery area,
you can use the newly created partition for other uses, such as
for saving personal data. Be careful that once the recovery area is
deleted, the Samsung Recovery Solutions will not work anymore.
The capacity representation of the hard disk drive(HDD)
in Windows is different from the product specifications.
•• The capacity of the storage device (HDD) of the manufacturer is
calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes. However, the operating
system (Windows) calculates the storage device capacity assuming
that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the capacity representation of
the HDD in Windows is smaller than the actual capacity.
This is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does
not mean the installed HDD is different from the product
specifications.
•• The capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the
actual capacity because some programs occupy a certain area of
the HDD outside of Windows.
•• For models with Samsung Recovery Solution, the HDD capacity
representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual
capacity because Samsung Recovery Solution uses a hidden area
of about 5~20GB of the HDD to save the recovery image, and
that hidden area is not counted towards the total size available to
Windows.
The size of Samsung Recovery Solution varies by models because
of the different size of applied programs.
