L420 Recovery Partition Deleted


Today on my L420 I was looking in My Computer and noticed that the Recovery Partition which was drive G? was gone. I went to disk management and looked in diskpart and both confirmed it deleted.... Is there any way I can restore it without ordering a recovery disk? If I have to order a disk from Lenovo, then who should I call? This is under warranty by the way

Edit: I just found built in Windows 7 Backups... As long as I have 10gb free from the deleted partition, I decided to add a new ntfs volume where Thinkvantage recovery was... Will Windows 7 backup function as well as Thinkvantage did in the exact same circumstances?

Re: L420 Recovery Partition Deleted

The ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery partition held the original factory default image.

If the 10GB where the deleted partition wasn't reoccupied, then a partition recovery tool could have easily recovered the partition.
