Every Hippotizer unit ships with a restore partition on the C: drive to enable the quick restoration of factory settings. This is accessed at boot-up, before Windows starts up by pressing F12 when prompted.

The F12 restore will delete all data from the C: drive and restore the factory loaded software and defaults. It is therefore important to store newer versions of Hippotizer software on an external drive or the D: drive for fast system rebuild.

3rd party back-up and restore tools may destroy the F12 restore function. If additional back-ups are required, please use the included Acronis software.

Included with the Hippotizer is also a single license for Acronis True Image, an easy to use imaging and restoration tool. Green Hippo strongly recommends regularly backing up each Hippotizer machine’s C: Drive to external storage to facilitate rapid recovery in the event of a hardware or software fault.

On Amba, Karst and Boreal the F12 menu is accessed from the prompt during boot-up. On a Taiga, press F8 during boot up and set the boot device to be the Acronis Boot loader.
