I am running Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) on Lenovo T510 (4313-CTO). As soon as I loaded some applications and transferred data from my old computer to “My Documents” in the “C” partition of the T510 I immediately began having space issues with automatic backup. I received the following alert:
Low Disk Space.
You are running out of disk space on Lenovo_Recovery (Q
Click here to see if you can free space on this drive.
The "Q" partition was pre-set by Lenovo at 9.76 GB. I have not tried to change it (yet).
I set the backup options to “Keep only the latest system image and minimize space used by backup.” Note that I viewed backups and it lists only one backup image on the “Q” partition (given the warning message, perhaps even that is only a partial image).
Properties for the “Q” partition indicate
Used space: 10,476,949,504 bytes 9.75 GB
Free space: 8,806,400 bytes 8.39 MB
Capacity 10,485,755,904 bytes 9.76 GB
What do I do at this point to complete a backup?
If relevant to your suggestions, here are some specific questions about solving the problem:
Thanks, in advance, to all who are able to respond. Peace … E

The Q partition is not for backups. It's there to hold the software that will create your "Restore to Factory" CD set.
For backups you can use CD/DVDs or an external USB hard drive.

To Nap and others
Got it on back-up. I did not initiate a backup but assumed that the error messages that I am receiving were caused by a Lenovo auto-initiated backup. What can I do to elminate the error messages I am receiving (see my prior post).
Peace ... Ed

Start the Lenovo backup program, click on "advanced" mode, then on schedule and preferences. Disable any schedule and set your target to something else than Q:. Also check that the Microsoft Windows backup program schedules are disabled.
