Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP 1

Hi tammyc and welcome to Seven Forums. Backup and Restore in the Control Panel is part of Windows 7 and not for the recovery partition on your computer. To use the recovery partition, there may be a program that will start it up listed in the start menu, or you may need to watch when your computer first boots up and it may tell you which key to use to enter to start the recovery process. The recovery partition shouldn't get any larger as it only contains the files needed to restore your computer to the way it came when you first bought it. If you restore your computer using the recovery partition, than yes, you will need to reinstall your programs and any personal files that you have saved, like pictures, music, documents, etc.
