First of all, hello to everyone visiting this forum!
Second, I couldn't really find a good place to post this thread, so I hope it's in the right section of the forum.
Now, my problem is that I want to create a back up, using windows 7's back up options. I've read some tutorials on this site and other sites, and it's really simple. The only problem I'm facing is that I want to select my External Hard Drive (1TB), but I can't find if it will erase this hard drive first? or will create a new folder? I've already created a system image, which creates a new folder on my hard drive, so I can restore from that. But I also want windows to automatically back up my modified or created files once every week. Will windows create a new folder so that the files that are already stored on my HD will remain?
My second question is, if I decide to let windows back up my Documents and Settings folder every sunday for example, and during the week I delete some files. Windows will notice on sunday that some files have changed or have been deleted, will it also delete them from my external HD because they aren't on my HD anymore? I suppose not right?
After creating a system image, it prompts asking to create a system repair disk. If you have an original windows 7 cd, this is completely unnecessary right? (If yes, why does windows offer this function? Everyone's using windows 7 is supposed to have an original disk right?)
Thanks in advance,
