Can't create Recovery Media using Lenovo Create Recovery Media tool Windows 7

2017-03-15, 5:51 AM

T540p, Windows 7 Pro

 

When I run the "create recovery media" tool, I am given the error:

 

"No (sic) enough temporary space in C drive, Create Recovery Media will exit now."

 

I have 89GB free on my 256GB SSD. My Recovery Partition is 16GB. How much free space do I need?

UPDATE: I have clean some things of my C: drive, I now have 104GB free (of 215GB total). I am still getting the not enough temporary space in the C drive error. I cannot create recovery media. Any suggestions?

The error message might be misleading. Could be some missing permissions. Does your user have admistrative privileges?

Do you get the same error if you try logged in as Administrator?

Thanks for your reply. I am logged in as an Administrator. I even tried choosing "Run as Administrator" for recovburncd.exe. All with the same error code. I did find a log file, perhaps that will help. I'll post the log in a separate message.

Re: Can't create Recovery Media using Lenovo Create Recovery Media tool Windows 7

What drives are connected to the laptop while the Factory Recovery Media is being prepared?
How is the SSD partitioned?

Factory Recovery Media should be 16 GB.

Re: Can't create Recovery Media using Lenovo Create Recovery Media tool Windows 7

Thank you for your reply.

Your question made me think about that. I had added two drives, so I removed them and replaced the original DVD drive. Then a fresh boot. Still getting the error.

The SSD (as shown in Disk Management) is partitioned, or see screen shot below:

96MB Healthy (EFI System Partition) (hidden)
215.33GB Windows7_OS (C:) Healthy (Boot, Page file, Crash dump, primary partition)
1000MB Healthy (Recovery Partition) (hidden)
16.36GB Lenovo_Recovery (Q:) Healthy (Primary Partition)

Something odd is I think the 1000MB hidden recovery partition is new. I think it's new since I ran Disc 1 of the Recovery Discs I burned when I first got the computer. I could always just use those, but I'd prefer the USB thumbdrive.


The only possible issue I can think of is I cloned the factory 128GB SSD to a 256GB SSD I already owned. Perhaps the recovburncd.exe is looking for the original factory 128GB SSD??

Your assumption regarding a SSD replacement influence might sound because of partitions for recovery process must have appropriate type and attribute (GUID), not every cloning application might do that completely and accurately.

Does the Windows have the disk space quotes features disabled?

Could you show the log file as above with USB thumbdrive, w/out the rest ones inserted? Hide it under the spoiler here, please.

My concern is whether the factory recovery media tool reassigns the drives letters in this case.

The cloning software I used was Macrium Reflect (free version). I did some searching but couldn't find if Reflect properly clones the GUID attributes you mention.

 

> Does the Windows have the disk space quotes features disabled?

 

I think you mean turning off low disk space notifications?

 

New log file

, only the SSD installed and the 16GB USB thumbdrive plugged in.

 

Still getting the same error.

Re: Can't create Recovery Media using Lenovo Create Recovery Media tool Windows 7

An update on my quest to make a USB stick of the Recovery Partition:

 

* I removed the current SSD and replaced it with the factory original 128GB SSD

* I used the DVD's I burned for factory recovery and restored the 128GB SSD to original state

* I still get the same error! (note* below)

 

 

*Note: I get two errors, the first one is something like "Only one copy of Microsoft Operating System is allowed, Create Recovery Media will exit." I searched for this issue and found this solution. Then recovburn.exe will continue. However, I am still getting the "Temp space on Disk C is low, Create Recovery Media will exit". I thought perhaps something had gotten messed up on my 256GB SSD, so that is why I ran the Recovery Disks on the original drive, hoping that would magically make it work now. It doesn't, this is frustrating. If I call up Lenovo, will they just send me out a USB thumbdrive with recovery media on it since I cannot seem to create one myself?
