Lenovo one key recovery backup memory

I want to back up my files to install win 8.When i already backed up previously,size of backup files are approx.9GB.
But now when i tried to back up again,size of files exceeding 25GB,which I Had not enough memory in another drive.
Willl it back up only my system files or total files in C Drive??
Can i lower the size of backup files,if so how??

You really need to use an External Drive if you are going to use One Key Recovery ...

To utilize the features of the OneKey Recovery system, your hard disk already includes a hidden partition by default to store the system image file and the OneKey Recovery system program files. This default partition is hidden for security reasons, which explains why the available disk space is less than the stated capacity.

The size of lenovo folder is 8.5 GB,which i backed up two years ago.But when i make fresh backup yesterday,this size is exceeding 20 GB.Can i know why these backup files sizes are increased?

I am sure you have Added more Programs and Files to you Drive .. Two Years is a very long time .. I would suggest you use and External Drive and backup regular .. I do mine once a week ..

You can also consider doing a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7which is a much better install than the factory install. Your backup can then be a Win7 backup image as well as file backup.
