I did click on the Recovery icon at the top and saw a very confusing listing as seen here:

At the top is the back-up image file -- TiW7C52012.tib -- I made and placed on my external hard drive. It is 50.3 GB and not the "System Reserved" 24.8 GB they list. I have no idea what they mean by System Reserve.

If you purchased a OEM system, they normally have a hidden recovery partition. If you did a fresh install on a new un-partitioned drive with Windows 7 Ultimate, it will normally create a hidden 100MB active 'system reserved' partition for the boot files. Since the size on your system reserve is 24.8 MB, is suspect it is either a recovery partition or perhaps a dual boot partition.
