R61 HDD space missing?

2011-05-06, 10:22 AM

i just update thinkvantage,

i don't know what happened, but something wrong with my R61.

 

 

1. all the backups are missing.

 

2.though backups are missing, but only 10GB free space in my R61. (the backup files were about 30~40 GB)

 

3.there should be about 50 GB free space or 10 gb free space and 30~40 gb backups and other files. but i can't find the backup files. i tried in R&R to find  them out   to delete them, but no backup there.

 

4. HDD is 105GB, windows and other program/files use total 52gb , only 10 gb left???  something wrong with it?

 

 

 

i wanna my first backup file and free space back!

 

could anyone give me a hand?? thanks

Have you tried to check the backup files from Lenovo thinkvantage rescue and recovery software?

so how many backups are you seeing in the Rescue and Recovery? and what is the total size.

Finally, you didn't mention which os you have.

how many backups am I seeing in the Rescue and Recovery? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

i can show the pic (sorry for the R&R traditional chinese version)

 

 

there are no backup showing on the list~  so, i can't tell you total size.

 

hmmm i am so confused!!!

 

no backup there but no free space in my HDD?

before the backups missed, there were more than 20GB backup files there.

I can't find them to delete. and in RRbackup maybe there are the old backups,

but right now i can't see them or restore my R61with these backups.

 only 5 GB left, but all the space i use only about 52GB,  but the HDD is 105GB.

so, i just wanna find where the old backups is and try to delete or restore with them or something eles.

 

 

thank lots. please help me, that makes me going crazzzzzzzy~~~~
