Rescue and recovery set to backup to external drive, but local drive backups not deleted

2009-01-14, 11:16 AM

Hi, I had memory issues, as have many on these boards. Following the advice I first updated my lenovo system and then pointed the rescue and recovery to an external hard drive and saved a new base backup.


At some point I was asked if I wanted the existing backups deleted and I said yes, however, I don't think they can have been deleted as their has been no increase in memory available.


I also ran the SpaceMonger program recommended on the boards and it was unable to scan 60% of the hard drive.


So, can you please let me know how to get to, and delete the original backups?


thank you
