Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) Reference

Updated: October 20, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

Windows® Recovery Environment (Windows RE) is an extensible recovery platform that is based on Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE). Windows RE is installed by default on Windows® 8 for both client and server editions. When a computer cannot start, Windows automatically fails over to this environment. Windows RE is required to enable push-button reset, which is the recommended tool for full system recovery in client editions of Windows 8. Push-button reset features provide end users with more recovery options.
