How to disable 'Recovery completed. Do you want to restore your user files?' window from repeating at startup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I factory restored my Windows 7 HP desktop (no SP1), then recovered my files from an external hard drive through the HP File Restore program and now I get the window saying "Recovery completed. Do you want to restore your user files?" at every startup.

    Long story short, I was not able to find much help online as this seems to not be a common problem. This was the closest solution I could find on this same forum:


    However, I was never able to find the "Recovery.txt" file I need to delete for the problem to go away.

    Now I have restored to factory settings once more and the window continues to pop up at every startup.

    I have no idea how to fix this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • The HP File Restore program is a product by HP, not Microsoft.

    You need to contact HP to ask for assistance with their HP File Restore program!

  • Hi ZedZZ,


    It seems that you can try HP troubleshooting tools and check if it helps.





    In addition, since Microsoft will not support 3<sup>rd</sup> recovery programs, I’m afraid your best bet is connecting to manufacturer for further help.
