Rescue and Recovery Backups - Renaming

I recently bought a 2TB USB HDD and want to transfer my Thinkvantage Rescue and Recovery backups to it because they are taking up the much needed space on my Laptop's HDD. I made a backup last week and accidentally hit 'Enter' at the wrong time while naming the backup, causing me to have an incomplete backup title.

Is there any way to rename a backup made by Rescue and Recovery?
It's just a big inconvenience to have an important backup with an incomplete name as I archive all my backups and need to find them quickly in the event of a system failure. 
Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Re: Rescue and Recovery Backups - Renaming

I don't believe its possible to rename the backups unless you delete and start over

Re: Rescue and Recovery Backups - Renaming


that is correct. It is not possible to rename a backup file.

I would see the option with delete and create a new one as currently the only solution.


Unfortunately this is the fact.
