Sorry, and I accept the way the program works and I will just back it up every month. I actually have a copy of Ghost 15 but there have been so many people complaining about it messing up their systems(and you need to load 32bit drivers to restore) that I wanted something very easy to use and the windows 7 backup seems to meet our needs. I will just take it as it is. Thanks for your help.
