[How To] Restore a deleted Hibernation file in Vista


Recommended Posts

If you've ever deleted the hibernation file in Vista either through a disk cleanup utility or vLite or whatever meathod and you need it back, here's how. Open an elevated command prompt (Start/All Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt and right click it and choose run as Administrator). Now type or paste in

powercfg -h on

and hit enter. Now all of your hibernation options should have returned. Alternatively if you need to save some space and don't use hibernation, replace "on" with "off".
