Windows 7 Backup
I'm a bit new to Win7 and am trying to get use to some of it's
features. I was looking into Backup Programs and decided to try the
backup program that comes with Win7. I'm mainly interested in backing
up all my files and folders. I setup the Win7 backup (and included an
Image Backup as well) to an External Harddrive, and it appeared to go
very well. I went to Restore and Restored a couple of files to a temp
location to see how it worked - with just fine.
Two questions - one, I would like to save a couple of copies of the
backup, but do not see an option in Settings to set the number of
backup to maintain - is there a setting for this or are you restricted
to just one back.
Second, I do not see a way to add the Backup Icon to the All Program
list - or do I have to go to Control Panel each time I want to run it
(I have it set for Manual start, not scheduled)?

By default, it only creates one incremental backup when done through Windows Backup.
There are two types of backup:

Hope this helps,
