U-Recover Help

Example: Allocate space for snapshots

In this example, you will create an XML script to allocate 50 gigabytes of space on the C: volume for making snapshots and setting restore points.

Step 1: Create the XML script
  1. Start U-Recover and click or tap on the tab Create (top).
  2. Find C:\ and click or tap on Manage.
  3. Move the slider to the right to allocate 50 GB of disk space for volume snapshots and restore points.
  4. Do not click the Apply button. Instead right-click or long-press and a popup menu will appear. Select Save Settings. U-Recover will write the interview questions to the file C:\Program Files\URecover\URecoverSettings.xml.
  5. Rename the file URecoverSettings.xml to AllocSpace.xml
Step 2: Run the XML script

To run the script, open an administrative console and type the following:

cd "C:\Program Files\URecover"   (If using PowerShell)
cd /d "C:\Program Files\URecover"   (If using CMD)
URecover.exe -xml AllocSpace.xml

You can build a CMD file or a PowerShell file with the above commands. When you click or tap on the file, U-Recover will automatically allocate the disk space.
