I just bought a Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Tablet (4294) and I'm trying to use the Factory Recovery Disks application within Lenovo ThinkVantage Tools to create "boot media" and "data media", but I don't have enough space on my 8 GB USB stick for the latter. This was surprising to me because I read that a CD will hold the "boot media" and a DVD will hold the "data media." My laptop doesn't have an optical drive, so I can't burn any disk. (Don't get me started on my Sony DRX-710UL external burner that won't work with Windows 7.)
Anyway, this is the error I get, including the misspelling:
Create Recovery Media
No enough temporary disk space in D drive, Create Recovery Media will exit now.
Another post got me looking into a file called cdrivebackup.wim and I'm thinking that perhaps I need to get a USB stick that is as large or larger than Q:\FactoryRecovery, which for me is 9,592,796,014 bytes (~9 GB), per below. Does that sounds right?
