    I ran a back up of files last night to the above. All seemed to run fine. I
    got the message that the backup was successful.
    When I 'View all backups' on the 'Create a backup' screen in 'Rescue and
    Recovery', it shows the backup successfully done to the USB.

    When I look for the files/backup on the USB, it's not there. Can anyone help?

    In Ultimate, if you ran a Backup "Computer" as opposed to Backup "Files",
    you would need to show "hidden files" in Folder Options to see the virutal
    disk images, which what you would do with them I'm still checking out.

    So, when you Start\Computer\your USB drive, you see no files or folders? My
    backed up files & folders are in my K:\ComputerName\Backup Set date\Backup
    Files date\Backup
    files No.\etc. There will be a series of folders. What do you see?

    I have gone about the backup in a different way. The one that failed was done
    through the Lenovo ThinkVantage menu. I accessed backups a 2nd time through
    Accessories/Tools/etc - ran it from there and it worked fine. I'll stick with
    that way. Thanks for your help.
