Lenovo Rescue & Recovery 4.5: terrible piece of software
Just a notice to all users, not to use Lenovo Rescue & Recovery. Everything goes well, until the restore : I have one SSD for system and one micro sata for data. The system drive had two partitions (created by Lenovo at the origin, a system (C) partition and a Lenovo recovery partition). When I tried to restore a previous version of the system drive that I backuped with Lenovo R&R, it restored the system on C: and restored the recovery partition... on D:, erasing all my data ! In addition, the MBR was missing. And cherry on the cake, I could not use the beckup a second time when I tried.
I was particularly disappointed because as the backup went so smoothly, I did not do a data backup before restore, my previous backup being three days old, so I lost three days of work.
I had previous bad experience with Windows backup & restore, the software could not find the resotre, but at least it did not erase data. Now I am trying acronis, did not try restoring yet.
I reinstalled my laptop with an orginal Windows porfessional CD, I could use the licence number on the laptop sticker, I'll never use a Lenovo software again. And i'll never restore without backing up or disconnecting my dta drive.
