I have been doing backups using Windows backup since I set up Windows 7 back in Oct 09. Until about 2 months ago, I was doing backups to an external USB drive. Back in November 10 I got a NAS box, and I have been sending my backups there. All has been well.
Last night, Windows decided upon it's own to do a system image of an old data drive that's inside my box for reasons only it knows.
I have three local hard drives, C:, D:, and F:.
D: is simply a data drive.
F: is a drive containing an old Windows 7RC copy. I left it there in case I needed to copy any data from it. I really don't even use it, and it's not used for anything.
My Windows backup "Let Me Choose" screen looks like the attachment shown below. As you can see, "Include a system image of drives" shows "(F:), (C:)"
Why has it decided on it's own to include F:? It never did before. My backups have only included a system image of C:. Clearly Windows "thinks" that F: is "required for Windows to run", and the question is WHY?
Can anyone help me out here? I don't want images of F:, and I'd rather not pull the drive. How can I make Windows Backup stop thinking F: is "required"?
Thanks in advance.
