The images are taking up 11gig in space each, A DVD only holds I think 4.7Gig.
The backup software should take note and asking for 2nd, 3rd disk.
There are 2 entries in Pqservice that once I do a system restore or burn recovery disks may activate when used, even though I know what to do to head it off I'm wondering if I can remove before making backups.

The Factory default image DVD , can recover busted Acer boot record , by just installing it on the laptop...... ( Alt - F10 on boot not function)
No way people .. The Factory default image DVD, made by your computer, does not do that .
I will speculate , that ACER did that deliberately.
Only the factory made DVD will do that , repair the boot record , and store the files on the hidden partition , but not for free .
1) If you have delete the hidden partition and files , its no more possible to create the " Factory default image" DVD.
2) If you have create the " Factory default image" DVD , you can restore your system at any time , By keeping in your hard drive the three partitions structure , and always at FAT32 .
Disk 0 - Part 0 (hidden ) 4GB
Disk 0 - Part 1 C: (size not matter) Max 120GB
Disk 0 - Part 2 D: (size not matter) Max 120GB
Fat32 limit for 16bit applications are 127.53 GB , then its possible to get corruption on your data .
So , one reasonable choice will be to stay at 120GB, and if you have larger drive made another partition.
Disk 0 - Part 3 E: (size not matter) Max 120GB
|Either my restore disks were corrupted or they have uuid of the drive they came from.|
