    My laptop is an Acer V3-571 with Windows 8.It wouldn't download Windows Updates so I decided to do a Factory reset via Acer Recovery Management.It seems to be taking ages.After 3.5 hours,it is still at 45%.Is this normal to take as long.My Samsung laptop did it in about 25 minutes.

    That sounds like an extraordinary length of time. Should be a lot shorter. Is your laptop plugged in? Trying to do that on battery could extend its time dramatically.

    Thanks for the reply.Laptop was plugged in.It was strange because it speede up considerably later on and finished in just over 4 hours.I did a refresh later on and it took about 25 minutes.Hope it was just a hiccup since I just got the laptop yesterday.
