Hi Brink read this tutorial and this works ok if the backups exist on the backup location. My gripe is why does the Windows 7 backup not allow a purging of any backups that have been deleted by accident or lost by hard drive failure. I backed up my Users folder now and again and lost the backup by deleting it and all my current files in the folder Users are when selecting 'restore previous versions' pointing to the deleted backup location because I did a restore folder using backup pior to losing the backup. This causes the Windows 7 backup to stop working since it cannot find the backup when creating the shadow copy. Do you know any way of purging these ghost backups by way of the registry?
