OEM Recovery Partition Creator, for advanced users, can create a copy of your partition and bootable rescue media to restore your computer to its original state. The idea behind the app is to be able to create a factory restore just like the one that comes with Dell, HP, and others.
However, if you’re not an advanced user, and possibly even if you are, you might not know where to begin or how to use the program. The documentation is massive, and could easily be replaced with a graphical user interface.
Upon extraction, you are told that the files are only going to be extracted. What you get is seven new folders, all for different operating systems, documentation(you’re going to need it), add-ons and sources.
If you’re anything like me, you’re a little surprised, confused and lost at this point and you haven’t even started.
