So, you want to reclaim hard disk space on your Dell computer huh? Luckily enough, the company has launched a more recent tool called Dell Backup and recovery Manager (DBRM) with our free dell support australia Coustomer service. This tool works for a very specific condition; that is it can help you to retain the space taken up by the Windows recovery partition.
