I had it set up, untill it stopped working, never had a chance to try a restore. Tried backing up to internal and external drives, changing the fileset backed up, could not get it to work. I Had some serious problems with this system that seemed to start around the time I installed Paragon 10 Backup(free), Windows backup quit working, Windows was hanging up during shutdown, and some applications GUI would not start, the process would start, but no GUI. Maybe Win 7 does not like 3'rd party backups? I think I might stick with Windows Image Backup.
