    I apologize if this question is posted to the wrong group. As it is specific to Office 2010 installation on a Lenovo I am not sure where to post.

    I installed Office 2010 from CD/DVD. To accomplish this I had to make a drive Q available for the Office installer to work correctly. On Lenovo laptops drive Q is, by default, used to store the recovery media (Windows 7, drivers, etc.). The 'easy' fix was to assign the current drive Q to another drive letter making drive Q available to install Office 2010.

    The problem I now have is that I want to create a recovery DVD from the media that is normally installed on drive Q, but is now on drive Z. When I run the Lenovo utility to create the recovery media it cannot find the files. If I try to access or delete the drive Q used by the Office 2010 installer I am denied access. I assume drive Q i now a virtual drive as I cannot see it in the Computer Management >> Storage >> Disk Storage utility.

    Can anyone suggest a method for removing the current drive Q (assuming Office 2010 no longer needs the drive), or how I can get the Lenovo utility to see the recovery files on another drive (Z)?

    Thanks in advance for any help on the above.
