Note: The Recovery function provided on the USB Memory Stick is not a recover (rescue) of lost or damaged data/files currently located on the storage device. The Recovery function only re-installs the same OS as originally installed and is intended for use if the current OS was damaged or did not function properly. The current contents of the storage device is therefore fully overwritten by the Recovery function.
