Question

 

How do I back up my data using Windows 7 vs Lenovo tools like Rescue & Recovery?

Answer

 

Lenovo recommends Rescue & Recovery on Think products and One Key Recovery on Idea since these are included in the preload.  However, Windows 7 also includes built in data backup functions.

 

Under Windows 7, you can use Windows Backup to backup your data. It includes both file backup, which is a copy of the personal files—such as documents, music, pictures, and videos— and system image backup, which is an exact image of a drive. You can use a system image to restore the contents of your computer if your hard drive or computer ever stops working.

 

To set up Windows Backup:

  1. Click the Start button, click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, and then click Backup and Restore.
  2. Click Set up backup.

Is it possible to setup a backup for my windows 7 home edition laptop with my sotrcenter ix2 as the destination drive for the backup either via the windows restore and backup facility or via the storcenter manager console? note: From the windows backup and restore feature, there is no option to select a network drive only the DVD drive even though I can map a drive to the storcentre.
