Agree with the above,it looks like you a have a recovery partition.

If you tap possible F11 or the delete key on startup you should see the 3 options.

Is this a Medion pc/laptop by any chance.

Skidzy,yes its a medion pc.So i definately should keep them.

These are part of the image of your hard disk as it was set up in the factory.

If you need to do a recover these files are vital.

  pac73 19:17 11 Dec 06

But retten.exe is,nt there.

  skidzy 19:21 11 Dec 06

Yes yes yes

Do not delete these.

Have you entered the partition yet possibly F11 or the delete key on startup.

The 3 options are something like

Repair without losing data
Repair with restore
Destructive recovery (factory settings)

Not absolutely positive of my wording,but you need this partition maybe for future use.

Sorry Fruit Bat /\0/\ i was away from the pc for a moment and forgot to refresh.

  pac73 19:26 11 Dec 06

skidzy,what do i do when i get into the partition.Theres nothing wrong with my pc.

  skidzy 19:35 11 Dec 06

Nothing if the pc is working fine.

We are just making sure you understand what it is used for and how you get to access the partition if needed.

If your PC crashes you can restoreit to its original state (as you got it), provided you DO NOT deletefiles in the recovery partition or resize any of the partitions.

To restore to originl state.

1. Insert Support CD and reboot the PC
2. Select the Option to Start from CD ROM
3.Follow the on screen instructions.
4 The PC will restart to its original factory settings.
