Backing up my computer

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T60p with Vista. Have been backing up regularly using the Windows utility as well as the Lenovo Rescue and Recovery Utility. The Windows to an external disk and Lenovo internally. Since the Lenovo ulitily makes 5 back ups it has been eating up all of my harddisk space, I occassionally download shows and movies. Any recommendation on whether i should continue to use both programs and if i continue with the Lenovo program whether i should continue the backups to my internal harddisk. thanks for the help ;-)

are you also backing up your movies and such? If so, does Lenovo give you the ability to tell what to backup? This could help on disk space.

Personally unless you have a special need to run two different backups, one should be all you need. Drop the Lenovo one.
