deleted 1st backup on Rescue & Recovery; won't backup new one...

2010-11-15, 11:41 AM

Hi...I am a 'newby' to this system..

I accidentally took away my 1st Backup on Rescue&Recovery.  When I go to start another backup, it starts but then stops saying there is not enough free space for it to work.  The Lenovo Recovery Disk shows 9.76 GB total with 3.25 free.  On one screen during my attempts to backup it said I might need as much as 55GB for the backup....

Can you please tell me how to correctly do this backup(provide enough disk space, etc), since there is none present on this new computer(13") and no internal disk drive to use....feels very VULNERABLE !!

 

I greatly appreciate your help,

Rob

Other alternative is to use a External Hard Disk...

 

So far that's what i've been doing.

I don't have an external HD right now, so I do want to at least get a backup on the Lenovo Recovery Disk(as I had until I accidentally deleted it) as insurance in case of major problems.

How and where do I increase the disk space to accomodate a new bqckup?  Since I did it successfully once when I first got this computer, it must be re-doable again ??

 

Thanks,

Rob
