The Acer 3050 laptops come with Acer eManager, a utility that includes Acer eRecovery, a proprietary recovery tool, that is similar to Windows' System Restore. Along with Acer eRecovery, the Acer Aspire 3050 provides a D2D, or Disk-to-Disk, Recovery utility that is accessible immediately after booting the computer. You can perform a system recovery on the Acer 3050 laptop from Acer eRecovery or from the recovery partition where D2D Recovery is stored. If you don't have an existing backup created in Acer eRecovery, you must restore the computer from the recovery partition instead.
