Windows 7: Change Backup Content after original setup??

Change Backup Content after original setup??

I am running Window 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I set-up my scheduled Windows Backup originally to include some files as well as to do a system image. I now want to eliminate the file backup and do only a system image because of concern about disk space. However, when I go into "Change Settings" it is no longer possible to change the content of the backup.

Anybody know how to do this?

Thanks for the response; however, that seems not to do it for me. I checked the Policy editor and found that under Backup - client all were set to "Not configured" which aparently means that all are allowed. Changing any of these to enabled would only limit my options. I just want to change WHAT is backed up to system image only. Right now I'm getting the image plus all user files. I don't see how changing these Policy editor options allows me to do that. It seem that I need to get back to the point of running the original setup wizard?
