My new xps 420 has a feature called data safe. I have one hard drive
installed. The control panel shows another drive called "recovery" and data
safe assure me that if a drive fails, the recovery device will allow me to
recover lost data. If a disk crashes, doesnt this destroy all the data?
Essentially I just dont understand haow "data safe " works. can some one
enlighten me?

Have you looked at data safe at the Dell web site? It appears to be an
online backup. In other words, you store your data at Dell.

Hi Leo Kline, the Dell data safe is an online feature which will hel
you store your data online. You will have to login to 'Dell DataSaf
Online Backup & Sharing' (http://www.dell.com/datasafe) and you ca
transfer all your data onto an online datastore. If you do not have th
username and pswd, contact Dell's tech support at 1-800-624-9896.
Whereas, on your Computer, the Recovery partition contains an image o
your computer as the way it was shipped to you by Dell. Incase of syste
failure, you can restore your computer to factory settings, as the wa
you had it on the day 1
You can access this recovery drive by tapping F8 on Dell logo an
select Repair Your Computer. It would be named as Dell Factory Imag
Restore. However, you should not install or add anything to this drive
