Windows 7: Lenovo Rescue and Recovery Not Working

Lenovo Rescue and Recovery Not Working

I bought my laptop with Vista Home Premium. And I upgraded to Windows 7 (via the offer for a 'free' upgrade). Now Lenovo's Rescue and Recovery won't run. I go to the Lenovo ThinkVantage Toolbox, click System Health, then go to Enhanced Backup and Recover and I click to run it, but it does nothing. Everything else in the toolbox works fine.

Here are my computer specs:
-Windows 7 Home Premium
-Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8800 @ 2.66GHz (2 CPUs)
-LENOVO 2764CTO - Intel GM45/GM47 Chipset
-2.9GB Dual-Channel DDR3
-ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series
-Speakers (Conexant 20561 SmartAudio HD)
-250GB Western Digital WDC

Most all of us agree that an upgrade is not the route to take. It leaves useless files on your system and can cause conflicts.which you are experiencing now.

Save all you Documents, Pictures, contacts, videos, music, etc to a flash drive,

Be aware, you will need to re-install your 3rd party applications.

There i poll going on now and "clean" install is winning by a mile,.
