More details needed:

What is a "selective backup"?

What backup application are you using?

What is a "plug and play"?

Are you trying to make an image or not?

Are you trying to back up Windows, personal files, or both?

Just stumbled on how to answer my own question thank you.When I said "selective" backup I was referring to such files as photos,bank accounts and suchlike.The "plug and play" is a "usb".Sorry to have troubled you.
