A restore partition contains all the software and programs needed to image the computer hard disk again. It has the original data, drivers, programs, applications, etc that make your computer to run as it ran the day when you bought it.
You can use F11 to restore the partition but it is recommended to make recovery disks because they will help you to recover your data in case of a hard disk failure.
When a file is partitioned it can become corrupted and in this case it will not allow you to open or to use a file. Fortunately you can recover the data from the corrupted file. For this you need a recovery program.
