    Thanks, but I think it is pointless exercise, backup is the way to go

    Hi Tito,
    I am noob
    I downloaded Extractor v6 then I went to dell and downloaded BIOS"XPS One 2710 A12.exe", then I drag this ,, XPS One 2710 A12.exe file" to UEFIextract bat then CMD black screen appeared with this message
    ------------- Extract GUID using UEFIExtract -------------
    --- Drop BIOS file on this .bat, then type the command ---
    Python.exe not found! Install or input correct location in line 26.
    Press any key to continue . . .

    When I drag this exe file to UEFIExtract application it create XPS One 2710 A12.exe.dump
    Could you help to extract HDR
    I am noob

    Was trying to extract the HDR file from a Dell executable with out success. Tried all the command line options I could find and non worked.

    Only thing that worked for me was the WinRar app.

    Just wanted to share that tip for anyone in need..
