Hi, I have an SL500 and the hard drive was 250 GB, but there are 211 gb available. in any case, I noticed that I was somehow only left out of 211 gb 80 GB. I asked that he was a technician at IBM and at - he said it was my backup of files. now, the drive from my computer q crashed in March of me to try to do something with the back ups and I need a whole new HDD, but my music has been registered via a flash drive.  the tech guy said that I should remove my old back ups. very well, very well. IM do that tonight and it is literally taken hours and right when I click on 'remove' it is not an answer.  I had my computer folder (? I think it's what you call) open so I could see how much space I had, and it DECREASES in fact then I was "suppression" of backups, and yet it was inadmissible. She went from 80 GB to 60 GB. Please help me solve this problem, im shaking for fear of losing my files because I don't want to do it like the last time. I don't know what could be taken from so much space.

I plan to buy an external hard drive in the next week but please help me, I'm 17 and I'm relics fear of losing my files again and my 19 GB of music.

Help, please

Rescue and recovery in your folder of ThinkVantage software creates backups (a full backup and the others are incremental) and stores them on another part of the HARD drive that you will not be able to see just by going to the properties of the C: drive.

Check the record of ThinkVantage Rescue and Recovery

Start-> all programs-> ThinkVantage (or Lenovo Care)-> Rescue and Recovery

Once you are there, you will see a bar upstairs with 4 or 5 options. Here, you have the ability to view the size of your backups. You also have the option to delete them. Search for the word "Advanced" in the menu bar, then select 'delete backups"to remove them and free up space on your hard drive. Don't forget that you can also "schedule" of your backups and you can choose to change the location you want to that backups going. For example, you can have the backups Save on a CD or on a drive of 'network '.

If you have Vista as an operating system, you can go to this document on our site of Lenovo to get a general understanding of our HARD drive partitions:

Let me know if you need additional assistance.

Thank you

  • Dell backup and recovery file storage location

    I am trying to locate where a backup of files of initial data with the help of Dell Backup and Recovery on my new Windows 7 laptop (Jan 2015), stored backup files.  I failed to provide parameters to use an external hard drive for backup.  I want to clean up backup files it does I can start using an external hard drive as storage location.  I looked everywhere, both on my laptop and Google search to find the location.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I know that it is a bit a necro but since it is unanswered.

    You can determine where the Dell Backup and Recovery Software stored your files by default when opening the software and start to run another backup. (Note: when you run the software again you may see the option to run another backup from the home screen.) In this case click on the drop-down menu almost invisible in the title bar (blue arrow), then select "Backup" (red arrow) in the menu.)

    On the screen "Data Backup", check the "local".

    'Creating data backup' screen will display a box titled "Browse...". "under the title"Where. "

    At the bottom of this box, you should see the path where Dell Backup and Recovery saved your backup.

    For me, the default location is "C:\users\CURRENT_USER\Documents". (CURRENT_USER is your user name).

    If you navigate to this location in Windows Explorer, you should see a folder named "Profile1". Here's my Dell backup files are stored by default.

    If for any reason you do not see a folder named "Profile1" I open the files in the default location and search for files with the .inp file extension. What are your backup files.

    BTW, for anyone reading the FAQ is NOT DELL-Jesse L linked to you to note what the FAQ for Dell backup and recovery that is currently in use. This is the FAQ for their former Dell DataSafe Local Backup 2.0 software which they no longer use. If you read that FAQ you can noticed the question and the answer below:

    How can I move backups of the system to another location for storage?

    Backup system can be moved to another storage location if you wish. Simply open Dell DataSafe and edit the backup for backups of your system profile. When you select the location, select the location where you want that all backups of the system to create. The application will automatically move all backups of your system to this new location.

    I just tested this in the current version of Dell backup and restore (version, and he did NOT move my old files from backup to the new location, he created a new copy from the backup, so you should delete old copies manually.

    I hope this helps someone.

    I have windows vista. I did a system restore. I can restore PIX saved on the backups before recovery was made?

    Hi rich,

    What kind of backup do you have?  If it were a full image backup, restoring them will be difficult unless you restore the entire image.  If it was a normal backup of files and folders, it should be fairly simple.

    Here is an article on the restore procedure: to make sure you do this right.  It's a selective restore of a full or selective backup (not a full restore from a full backup) - but since you did a full backup, it matches your process more closely than would a full restore.

    This is a GREAT article on backup and restore Vista process , but he won't go into detail about the restoration process - considering almost as easy, of course.  But it teaches you a lot about what is possible and how to do it.   It also focuses primarily on the full backup process, but he did mention the full backup and restore process as well.

    Here is an article on the advanced use of restoration (during normal restore does not work):

  • Manager backup and recovery in Windows 8

    I tried to create recovery disks in the Backup and Recovery Manager.  The software would only make the first disk and then hang up.  All the other empty disks inserted appear as complete. I'm trying to burn DVD + R discs.  The backup application was updated to the latest version.

    Contacted Dell technical support.  Initially, the representative did not know what Backup and Recovery Manager is or did until I showed it to him on a remote connection.  He claims that it is a Microsoft problem, even if it is the Dell software.  Representative said that since Microsoft has no burning software disk in Windows 8, the Recovery Manager will be properly burn discs. (I could do the backup on a USB key).

    Microsoft contacted; they began to laugh because he comes to Dell software, but helped me to look at it any way.  After 2 hours of watching the software does not work, the rep told me to call Dell again.  He said that I need to download and reinstall the software.

    Of course, software release not correctly the player after that burned the first disc and shows then all the following discs as being full.  When the second disc is inserted, it is read as not having not any space and then is ejected.

    I could not complete the backup process by using a recorder external panasonic. So it seems there is nothing wrong with the software and may be a hardware problem.

  • Backup and recovery strategy?


    Asked me to provide/formulate the strategy of backup and restoration for the new env Oracle under construction. Currently, all this is done by 3rd party and they do not share nothing with me :-) Customer will take the place of servers in the near future.

    Here is some info from the environment:

    Env: There are four production databases. All are 10 gr 2 ( on RHE Linux 5.8. All transactions on databases are through various batch and then the data is used by some applications/search engines.

    Current backup info: There is an incremental backup of level 1 made on daily basis and a level 0 is made every week. In addition, the archivelogs are backed up every hour. After each successful level 1 backup the archivelog saved that day there are deleted. I guess that is the case with level 0 backups. Retention is 30 days.

    New env: I learned that backups will NOT go to bands. On the contrary, they will be stored on the disk. So I guess that no special backup software (netbackup, comvault, etc.) will only be used. I tried, but no one confirms this hypothesis.

    I believe that above approach can be reused. But if I am preparing a 'Backup and Recovery Strategy document' with this detail, it will be a one page document. I don't know if this is enough information to go in this document.

    Please advise what must be regarded, sought and documented.

    Best regards

  • "Dell Backup and Recovery" asking the upgrade with the inspiron 15 model


    I'm new to this forum and also started to use the Dell laptop. I bought Dell Inspiron 15 (model 3521) 01-Jan-2014. I am trying to take backup of my laptop on a DVD. When I clicked on 'Backup and restore of Dell' app in app Manager. I try to click on backup system option 'Dell backup and recovery' section, its upgrade premium or enter key. Its not that allows to create backup DVDs.

    What may be the issue? Because when I bought it, seller said that his original one.

    It's part a scam from Dell.  I've got 5 Dell portable computers/computers / tables all have this software on it with a VERY limited useage then weekly or if I get a pop window op offering the upgrade at a special price which, in the end, is the same price as if you would have just bought or 'improved' (like Dell likes to call it) the program to a regular price which IS : 39.99.

    What I hate about businesses, in particular, the one that I spend a lot of money with it, is when they think they can put a quick access on me or in my case 5 times that I have 5 of these upgrade special offer windows popping up each week.

    You're better off getting programs like Goodsync which will back up your computer or synchronize your files on an external hard drive, and that you can use on all of your computers for only $29.99.  I use it on my servers and my offices.

    Otherwise good luck with Dell and their implementation to special day called 'offer' that is the price of retail, after all.  NOT COOL DELL ALL!
