Windows 7 backup - how can I get to setup again?

Hello,

I use a Dell Studio and have recently bought an external Seagate Expansion Disk for backups using Windows 7 Back up and Restore.

I don't like the way I set up the first backup I made, and having now seen the tutorial I would like to set up back up again differently, but I don't see how to get to do that! Can anyone help?

Thanks
Alan

Hello Alan,

While in Backup and Restore, you can click on the Change settings link like in step 4 of the tutorial below to change your Windows Backup setup.

Backup User and System Files

Hope this helps,

Hi Shawn, thanks very much. I wonder why I didn't see that! I think I can change the schedule at any time without disturbing anything else and that all I need do is look for 'change settings' - no need to reply again if that's correct.

Thanks again,
Alan

You're most welcome Alan.

That's correct. You can change what you like, and leave the rest set to what you had set.
