The ThinkVantage(R) Rescue and Recovery(R) program is an essential tool that enables users and administrators to restore backups, access files, diagnose problems, and make Ethernet connections when the Microsoft(R) Windows(R) operating system cannot start or run correctly. It also
enables administrators to deploy critical updates to systems that are corrupted or off the network. In addition, it can automatically apply patches to a system when a restore operation is performed.

The Rescue and Recovery program provides a workspace that runs independently of the Windows operating system. Thus, the Rescue and Recovery workspace enables you to perform rescue and recovery operations that might not be accomplished in the Windows operating system.
