You can look for a partition recovery utility and a good one should return the partition if you did not do anythig with the space after deleting it.

First  you can use the built in windows  backup and restore feature to create an image of your system. this had the befefit of being free and already there but has the con of being a very backup file as there is little compression. you wil ned to copy that file off your TP for later use. You can buy recovery disks from Lenovo for your system http://support.lenovo.com/en_GB/product-and-parts/detail.page?DocID=PD002127


Backup programs like Acronis Home  to image your system which offers a free trial.

Hey Oppkmrz,


Here is a great link talking about partition:




Also if you don't want to use windows recovery tool you can use the Rescue and Recovery Thinkvantage tool.


Best Regards,
