Great news!

I myself am out fishing for more RAM ... Angry ... but I doubt that I'll get any without paying for it.

I let IFL loose on it this afternoon. When I first (two days ago) ran IFL to check which partitions were present, these two partitions were empty, zero (0) bytes used:

WinRE > 460 MiB > NTFS
HDDR > 9668 MiB > FAT-32

Now, 353 MiB and 8660 MiB respectively are used ... Shocked ... and I have no idea what app has used the space or when?

I created an Image of the whole Disk and it verified OK. I will mess around a bit and see if I can gather the confidence to restore the Win10 partition ... Lips Sealed ... !

All OK. I think you got your 0% used from Disk Management. It can't read the contents of those partitions.

If you double click your .TBI you will see the partitions in TBIView. You can explore the contents of each partition. If you get an error when you double click it is a Permissions error because the image was created outside Widows. Fix the Permissions with...

Yup, that's what I came back to comment on.

I wonder what application will complain if I delete the "HDDR > 9668 MiB > FAT-32" partition?

I don't have IFW installed on the laptop but I have on the desktop and can check it there.

Don't tell anyone ... Roll Eyes ... but I start liking W10. I search and find all the missing (from Win7) "stuff". Almost everything is there but hidden in a different place.

What I don't like is that McAffe was showed down my throat, free for one month as was a few other products, fishing for revenue. Hopefully easy to uninstall without leaving too many traces. (Not installing in the first place ... Wink ... leaves no traces at all.)

Wait until you get BIBM working in IFL. Then delete the partition but don't select Clear Boot sector. If there is an issue you can Undelete the  partition. I doubt there will be an issue.

IFL has TBIView but it's not as intuitive as the IFW version.

Regarding Win10. I like it too.

See the attached sceenhot of the contents of the drives. Maybe You can deduct which app has created the stuff on HDDR?

I assume it is a Toshiba Recovery partition that you don't need. Delete it and make sure everything works. Then you could resize the Win10 partition, slide the WinRE partition and create a data partition. When you are ready for these changes. No hurry.

Okey, thanks for Your advise. I'll sit on my hands for a while, at least until I know that I'll keep it. The 4 GB versus 8 GB battle still rages ... Lips Sealed ... !

I went google on it and found:

How do I reset my Windows 10 computer to factory defaults?

I guess that's what this HDDR partition is there for. HDDR = Hard Disk Drive Recovery ?

I will test the procedure and if it works, I'll keep my first complete disk image with all partitions intact. Should I decide to sell it, I can restore it to factory fresh using that image and the next owner will have the original recovery options.

On the positive side, Toshiba will send an additional 4 GB module but I will have to install it myself. The best solution, I guess and if it is installed in a "professional manner", it will not void the warranty. My conclusion is that if there are no broken lugs ... Cool ... there is no broken warranty.

Good news about the RAM.

Yes, the image you have will be handy if you decide to sell the computer. It can be restored to your current or a new drive. Just restore it (when needed) if you have a new drive as no preparation of the empty drive is needed.

I think you should purchase the TeraByte Special Bundle. BIBM, IFW, IFL, IFD, TBOSDT. BIBM Partition Work will run in IFL so you won't have to change the BIOS to boot in Legacy mode. IFL is very versatile. It has TBOSDT and several useful scripts.


Done!

VAT was added making the total USD 62,48 (according to PayPal).

I did the purchase through SWREG and from them I have only received an invoice for "Image for Windows - Including Image for DOS/Linux" = USD 30,84. Maybe I'll get the other one in due course? (Rhetorical question since I have all the KeyCodes.)

There's no downloadable user manuals, only the online knowledgebase articles, right?

Edited: The invoice for "BootIt Bare Metal - Qty 1+" = USD 31,64 has also dropped into my inbox.

Great.

Your download site is...

http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/product-download.php

There are several IFW choices. I prefer

Image for Windows V2.99-00 (GUI) with IFD-CUI and IFU-CUI

... as I download IFL (non network) separately.

Good tutorials are on...

I've downloaded all variants, I think but I'll use the ones with GUI.

"ifl_nonet_en_gui" is the one I'll use initially. I've created the UFD and will test it later.

The KB articles are quite good but I look forward to reading Your guides!
