Reinstall OS and Keep Backup Settings
I'm having an issue with my tower that I built and I'm wondering if starting with a fresh OS installation will do the trick. My current setup is one hard drive for nothing but the OS and programs and multiple other drives to save files to. My issue is that I use the Windows Backup utility to backup the drives that contain important information. If I were to install a fresh copy of the OS, I imagine that the system wouldn't realize that I've performed a backup on the other drives before and would want to do a complete backup all over again rather than being able to do an incremental backup.
Does anybody know how to avoid this issue? Is there a way to backup the settings and log files of the Windows Backup utility to move to the new OS? The drive letters and everything else will be the exact same as they are right now. This also makes me curios of how other backup programs behave when the OS has to be reinstalled.
Any information is appreciated! Thank you for your help!
