Thinkpad T61 - How to disable rescue and recovery backup and recover the disk space

I've got a thinkpad T61, and little did I realize it was backing up my computer onto the same hard drive. My 80G hard drive is essentially cut in half b/c it filled up the other half with "backups".

"Found how to do this. The hard part was finding where to start. You need to find the Rescue and Recovery application, which for me was in the Start menu.

Start menu
Run ""ThinkVantage Productivity Center""
Menu ""ThinkVantage Technologies""
> ""Rescue and Recovery""

Disable Backups

Manage Settings
Set schedule and preferences

In popup
Uncheck the 'Schedule your backups` checkbox
Press `OK` button

Recover Space

Advanced
Delete Backups

In popup
Select the backups you wish to delete.
Press `Delete` button"
