Re: Thinkvantage Rescue and Recovery

That is correct. if you use the external drive option for your backups, R&R copies a whole buch of files to the drive so that you can boot from this drive if necessary. It also creates a hidden directory for your back ups.  The assumption is that this external drive is used solely for your thinkpad. But, if you have other computers using different backup/imaging systems you can use the same drive by creating a separate directory for these computers. Another option is to set up the USB drive as a shared network drive and create a separate directory for your R&R backups. I'm testing this scenario with my machines since we have 3 thinkpads at home.
