1- On 08/15/2013 I did the setup installation of the machine
2- 08/18/2013 did the OneKey backup to a 32 GB USB thumb drive
3- sometime did the Windows 7 install without drivers
4- the next day did a OneKey restore which worked excellent.
5- 08/24/2013 set up folders on a new Segate Backup Plus 1 TB USB 3.0 drive
6- 08/24/2013 did a copy/paste of backup files from thumb drive to folder on Segate 'just for the heck of it'
7- 8/24 downloaded/installed/ran Puran Defrag's First Run option on the 410 C: drive
8- it did a 'restart' disk check which never came back after 27% completion
9- Windows 8 blue screen with 'attempt to recover' which seemed to work
when I checked the 410 disk partitions in Computer Management, Management Tools, Disk Management, it looked like the only partition with anything in it was the one containing the C logical drive
10- resorted to another OneKey restore ... only this time OneKey did not find the USB thumb drive!
12- resorted to the folder on the Segate where I did the backup of the backup 'just for the heck of it' and it seemed to work fine and the reboot showed all external devices but I'm just not sure, I don't remember, what I'm supposed to see when looking at the physical drive 0.
I'll tell you what I see and please tell me if it's right or wrong but that will be a 2nd, later post.

This is what I see:
Disk 0 Basic 931.39 GB Online
1000 MB 260 MB 1000 MB Windows8_OS(C Lenovo(D 20 GB
Recovery EFI OEM (Boot,Page...) Primary Recovery
The thing is, with the exception of 'Windows8 (C', everything else shows as 100% free. Now I read from someone in a seperate email about checking the long discussion about Partitions before asking any questions (which I did by the way) that people were advised to contact Lenovo Support for local service. Thing is I already contacted Support because my machine came WITHOUT the stickers on the back shown in the online diagram and without which or if damaged the warranty is null and void. I never received an answer but i did it through email and now see there IS no email for this line of products.
Anyway, is this layout wrong? Should I copy my OneKey backup to one of those partitions since it still seems to work? What say you?
