    DBAR was not included on my computer. There are about a dozen Dell apps but that is not one of them. I ran across it when I was going through Dell's support site. It is listed for Windows 7 and 8x but not 10.

    Ya I went on the dell site.....60 bucks for 1 year.....Other manufacturers I look at were more expensive but included the 1 year support for whats its worth. Guess you get what you pay for and less these days.

    I have attached a popup message I just got from Dell. They are pushing business ethics out of sight. For some reason I am no longer able to upload and display an image here so I attached it. I only get a page to get an image from a url. Hmmn. Now the image is displayed here.

    Is the test drive time over ? Take it back for a better model.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    So you do have Dell Backup and Recovery. My PC came with Windows 8.1. I upgraded to 10. My original windows 8.1 and came with that DbaR pre-installed. I didn't like it at all. So I made system image to a bootable USB, then deleted DbaR from my hard drive. This way if I ever had a problem I could still use the bootable drive (It has a version of DbaR installed on it) to get my PC back to the factory original if needed. Fortunately for me, this was before Dell decided to make the change and start charging users for the software. Deleting DbaR was purely personal preference on my part.

    If you try to make a recovery drive and you get to the part where it says leave "back up system files" and don't check that box, you should be able to finish creating the drive. But when you check it, the process stops when it gets to the part where it tries to copy the system files (widows OEM), because it cannot read or write the protected partition created with the Dell factory install. Therefore it cannot continue and windows aborts creating the drive. I am wondering if DbaR has something to do with this, because I have deleted it from my system and I was successful in creating the drive. Just guessing though.

    I don't know what the answer is for you at this point. Maybe if you call dell and demand that they send you a backup DVD with your original factory settings, that might work. The repair disc you made will help some, so all is not lost.

    Sugarcube, I followed your link to a Windows 10 recovery instruction section. The problem as I see it is that it will restore my computer to Windows 8.1. From the Dell messages it seems pretty clear that I did not get a clean install of windows 10. Instead they just upgraded a computer in their warehouse from Windows 8.1 to 10. I need a day or two to clear my head. I seem to be wheeling around in circles. lol

    Here is an explanation of what is going on. Dell has deliberately disabled some of Windows 10's recovery functions to force users to buy their premium recovery and backup tool that starts at $40. Outrageous.

    It is outrageous. Is the $40 annually? I bet it is. You do have the option of creating a clean install by downloading the ISO from Microsoft and burning it to disc. It would most likely void your warranty from Dell though and it isn't a 100% guarantee that it will work. If it were me, I would probably do it, but I am not recommending it without at least an initial backup to fall back on. It isn't just Dell that is doing this. Other companies are following suit.

    The stuff you posted about Dell disabling Windows recovery functions makes ME angry, and I don't even own a Dell. (Actually, I still have one of those Dell Mini 10s we never use. Thinking of giving it to my grandchild to bash on when he's old enough.)

    I would return the Son-of-a-B., if it was me.

    I have a GOOGLE tablet....it spends more time updating itself than I use the dam thing.....lol
    Way worse then windows that for sure.
    Here is a catch to........after windows 10 is no longer free and if you have to reinstall widows....you will get 8 then have to buy 10......lol.... I wait at least 6 mouths before I buy a new machine with a new OS....But may not matter to. Everybody looking for a free buck today... Nothing for free anymore.
