Windows 7: Not able to set up system restore

Go to Accessories and right click on the Snipping Tool. Select Send To and Desktop. I suggest moving it to your taskbar. When you have the System Protection screen open and all drives shown, click on the Snipping Tool. It will cause your screen to go opaque. Click and hold on the left, top corner of the Protection Screen. Then, drag the mouse cursor to the right, bottom corner of the screen. Release the mouse button. The Snipping Tool interface will come up, showing the area you outlined. Click on File, Save As. Save it as a picture format. Then, upload the resulting file here.

Hi! Okay here is a picture of my system protection page! But I can't figure out how to upload it. How do I do that? Thanks!

I can barely see it but it appears that the C: drive is shown twice- once as System and the other looks like Mining but I'm not sure. I would turn protection off for the latter and System Drive. I don't know what else is in Available Drives.

Ok thanks for the advice. I'll turn off Lenovo recovery, since I don't care for taking system images. I think that's what it's for.

Are you also going to turn it off for the ones I mentioned? You didn't say if there are more listed than what I can see.

From top to bottom, I see in System protection, these items:
(1 SYSTEM_ DRV ON
(2) Windows 7 _ OS ( C ) (System) ON
(3)) Lenovo Recovery (Q) off
(4) Windows 7 _ OS ( C ) (Missing) On
That's all I see in the window in there, even after scrolling down. I am in the process of Removing Lenovo Recovery Program, since I never do system images - I prefer using Restore disks instead. Do you mean I should remove both of the C items? That is (2) and also (4)?

No. Item 2 is the one you want to use to set your system recovery options. Just turn protection off for the other 3. Actually, I don't know what it's seeing with item 4. Seems to me you could delete that one but I wouldn't think you would do that until after you've set a system restore point, just in case it's needed.

Thank you very much! I wouldn't have known what to do otherwise as I find no information about it on the internet. It will be interesting to see if I see any improvements to my computer through this fix. Bye!

You're welcome. I assume that you are now able to set your system recovery options. If so, mark the thread as solved.
