Lenovo Rescue and Recovery

I bought my Lenovo last April and wish to backup my pc to DVDs. When I tried I received two error messages*. I then decided to uninstall Rescue and Restore 4 and download it from the Lenovo website. I uninstalled the original R&R and downloaded tvtrnr4v_117en.exe. Unfortunately, after going through the long installation process I received the following message:

Error 1304: Error writing to file C:Program FilesCommon FilesLenovoLoggerlogman.exe. Verify that you have access to that directory

When I looked at the Logger directory I found that it was apparently empty.

Any suggestions??? (I have spent all morning on this and am getting sore eyes)

* Error 25013: Error obtaining the Rescue and Environment drive letter and

Error 25012: Error accessing the Rescue and Recovery service partition

As I have uninstalled the original Rescue and Recovery these error messages no longer apply

    Thanks Techbybucky.

    I don't have a notebook. I contacted Lenovo and, after a little persuasion, sent me the Rescue and Recovery disks. They suggested that if I restored my desktop to its factory settings I might find that the Rescue and Recovery part of Lenovo Care would re-appear. As I had uninstalled Rescue and Recovery I was not at all optimistic that it would, in fact, re-appear so I've decided to forego backing up my entire hard drive. At least I know have a hard copy of my Vista operating system.

SOURCE: File is not accessible. Access is denied message

Sorry for the delayed responce. Ok first thing is first. The "files/folder is not accessible" occurs because the program cannot find the files in the place where they should be. for example if you put your socks in a draw and your wife moved it, when you return you wont have axcess to them right :) will basically its the same thing here. What you will need to do is find the default directory of itunes it should be in the Options or tools ir settings menu (I dont use itunes so i am not sure just play around in the program until you find it) once you do you need to search you computer for where the PC Backup put your files ..
click start then search and type the name or piece of the name of a song you know should be there. Once you find it browse to the directory of where the song is located. Click start then my computer then local disk to get to your harddrive. Go to the folder that has the songs and copy them. then paste them into the directory where itunes is looking for them.

Rescue and Recovery 4 52 by Lenovo

I have never been a fan of automated back up systems, and well, as far as I know these systems never back up software in that process, just the Operating system and the personal files.
I always keep important files on a external drive, or USB

to reset computer to factory out of theb box state on a toshiba is the number 0 on the key board,which you turn off computer and hold that button down until you see the logo of laptop and release and it will ask you of a out of box state ,make sure if you do try this do a backup of data on disk,and then try not sure wheather this will work,only try if wanting to reset today,but what i would suggest to you if you ring the lenovo support number you then ask for a way to set to out of box state or factory state and they will be able to help you with their brand for resetting it is easy and they are helpful with giving this information ,if they ask why,just let them know that its either a virus or something which is causing it to not load properly.hope this wait to get that reset key as i know it works for toshiba.

The exe file you downloaded is a self-extracting package - you need to run it to extract the files.
