I have a laptop: Lenovo G560 running Windows 7.
I keep receiving messages from the Action Center that says "Check backup disk space(Important)". When I press it, a message comes up with three options: Manage backup disk space, Change backup settings, Try to run backup again." I've tried to run backup to create a system image and it fails saying that there's not enough space. Lenovo's D: partition seems to be specifically for this. 25.18GB are free out of 29GB on this partition...how much space should a system image take up? I went in to the "set up backup" settings, changed it to "Let me choose" and checked only "Include a system image of drives H: and C:"
I attached a jpeg of what this window looks like. Attached File  backupSettings.jpg   60.26KB   0 downloads
There is not a single system image saved on my computer...doesn't seem good! Any advice would be great, thank you!
