When I created recovery disks, and each time I create backup disks, ThinkVantage makes a "Rescue & Recovery" CD followed by a DVD. Are these Rescue & Recovery CDs always the same? If so, I would like to keep only one of them along with the backup DVDs.

I was concerned that the Rescue & Recovery Startup Disc may contain some information about the contents of the remaining Recovery Disks - like how many were required and where files were placed. It's a pain to keep all these disks properly stored and labeled, but I guess I better keep them all until I can find out for certain that the Startup Discs are all the same. If they are, one has to wonder why Lenovo doesn't just make one and then only backup what is required. In fact, one has to wonder why they don't just make the first DVD in the backup set a bootable disk.
It is a shame that the wonderful design of the Lenovo 300X stopped before it was completed. Who put the USB ports on the left, the AC on the back with a straight out connector on the adapter, and an extra disk in every backup set? And what's with the tiny little loose screw that has to be removed and replaced when you switch the CD out and put a battery in? Try that in an airport. No one should get design awards unless they design the WHOLE enchilada.
