How to do a system recovery on your Encore tablet using the USB recovery drive


1. USB Flash Drive containing system recovery data. This article assumes that you have previously created a USB Recovery Drive using the Advanced Recovery Tools in Windows Control Panel. If you have not created your USB Recovery Drive, launch the Recovery Media Creator by typing “Create a recovery drive’ at the Start Screen and follow the prompts.

Alternatively, you can purchase one from Toshiba (cost is based on media, postage and handling). Contact the Toshiba Support Centre on 13 30 70 (Australia) or 0800 445 439 (New Zealand) Monday to Friday, 8AM to 6PM (AEST), excluding national public holidays.

2. USB adapter cable (Micro-USB Male to Mini USB Female).
