Inspiron 15 3520 System restore from backup partition?

This question is not answered

Is there a backup partition on the Inspiron 15 3520?  It is running windows 8.  I have not been able to find a way to access any sort of restore option.  Any ideas?

  • Hello Oogilily,

    In order to assist you further, I would request you to help me understand if you are talking about System Restore (restoring the computer to an earlier date or tome) or PC Restore (taking the computer to its factory image)?

    Dell Backup and Recovery Application will replace DataSafe Local 2.x on consumer and vostro platforms and Dell Backup and Recovery Manager (DBRM) on commercial platforms. There are four ways to open the Dell Backup and Recovery Application:

    1. Point to the right of the screen and when the charms bar comes up, click 
      Search then type in Dell Backup and Recovery. 
      Click Dell Backup and Recovery.
    2. Press the Windows Start button; click the Dell Backup and Recovery tile.
    3. Right- click on the Start screen, click All Apps and then click 
      the Dell Backup and Recovery tile.
    4. Open the My Dell Support Center tile from the Start screen and 
      click Backup. Click Launch Recovery Tool.

    Please refer the following articles for more details:
    -- Dell Backup and Recovery.
    -- How to Restore, Refresh or Reset your Computer.

    Please write back for further questions. 

    Thanks & Regards
