i have an R61 laptop and the automatic backups are filling up my HDD. I've seen the question on here elsewhere, but the common answer does not apply to my situation. I do not have and Advanced mode in Rescue and Recovery where i can select and delete an old backup.

How do I delete the old backups?

@Paul: I think a ThinkVantage tag is uneccessary, as ThinkPad can be used instead. – paradroid Jun 15 '12 at 19:15
    
@paradroid - not a problem, I agree! – Paul Jun 15 '12 at 19:18

In order to see the advanced tab, you must not run R&R from the Productivity Center, as you don't get the full menu.

Instead, start the program from All Programs->Thinkvantage-Rescue and Recovery, and you'll see the advanced menu at the bottom left. Now follow this knowledgebase article:
