What Is an Asus Recovery Partition

The recovery partition is a special partition on a system hard drive and is used to recover your system when the computer crashes. There are two types of recovery partitions. One is a Windows recovery partition created by installing Windows on the GPT disk. Windows recovery partition only takes up several hundred MB of disk space, as it only contains the operating system.

The other one is the suppliers' recovery partition created by computer manufacturers like Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Asus. This sort of recovery partition also allows users to restore the computer to factory default settings, including OS, drivers, and some built-in applications. Hence, it takes more space than the Windows recovery partition and is usually marked as an OEM Partition.

When you need system recovery on the Asus computer or laptop, you can access and start up the recovery partition by pressing F9. However, if the Asus recovery partition is missing due to the following reasons, you will find the F9 doesn't work when accessing the recovery partition.

  • ❌Delete recovery partition by mistake
