Viewing back ups

2009-02-28, 11:31 AM
I posses the Lenovo notebook 3000 N100. Total memory is 70 Gb and in the viewed C disk I have 18 Gb.All other I suppose about 40Gb probably it is in the back ups, but I dont know how to get it.I know that I have 4 back ups inside but I dont know how to cancel them and to use thise space. I am working only with 16 Gb free space.Thank you in advance for the answer, much more because I contacted two specialists, one who sold me the computer and other from IBM Slovenija.Thanks TT

To view system backups go to Start>Programs>Lenovo Care>Rescue&Recovery which will launch in basic mode, click link for advanced mode in bottom left hand corner of web page usually in blue, once you access the advanced menu you should see a button with a pair of glasses graphic on it called view backups, you can also delete these backups from there. However use caution leave a couple of them, I had only left the most current one in the file and during the delete process it took that one as well so now I do not see any in that location. Also if you are utilizing the Lenovo Systems Toolbox for Windows which basically replaces System Updates and PC Doctor, under the Security settings in file sharing do not delete the share even though this system deems it as unnecessary because what will happen is the Security setting then places a group policy editor in the Windows XP SP2 Firewall Exceptions box and all exceptions will not function at that point such as file sharing and internet connectivity. Currently I am looking for a command line tool or snap-in to fix this, however if all else fails I could reinstall from Recovery CD's any ideas? Sorry for spelling error on first post.
