Windows 7: Delete a backup disk?

08 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7

Emptied and reformatted my old HD after removing what I could from it by using Windows Backup..
Did not empty my new HD - just reactivated the schedule and made sure it was to back up what I wanted and then let it do a new backup run.
All is well, I think.
Thanks again...
