You might see if disconnecting and reconnecting the drive, or using a different USB port may help. Do you have any problems with manually copying and saving files from the external drive?

Kestrelbird,

I must admit that I'm stumped as to why it will not work for you.

You might try a 3rd party backup program instead to see how it may work for now.

I have the same problem. The Change Settings, Manage Space, Backup now and Turn off Schedule buttons are not working. Nothing happens when I click on them.

I discovered this after I created a weekly backup job to a network location. The job was running fine for a few weeks.

Then one day I was fooling around in the backup and restore center and for some reason pressed the Turn off Schedule button. And then I couldn't enable the backup job again (I pressed the button but nothing happened).

So, until I find a permanent solution I use work-arounds :
1. enable the job by starting the task scheduler and enable the job from there. Edit start time here also if you want.
2. to execute Change Settings : sdclt.exe /configure
3. to execute Backup Now : sdclt.exe /kickoffjob
4. to execute Space Management : /spacemgmt

At least there is a way around it for those keen to backup their goodies.

Note: I upgraded my Vista64 to Windows7-64. Maybe something went wrong, causing this. I have another Windows7 computer (clean install). There I don't have this problem.

regards,
JD

Mornning!

From some reason the beckup program of win 7 is backuping linked music laibery from an other haed drive.

I have found the basic options (last beckup or all beckups), but I need to find the Advenced version (Don't use links, beckup only c:\ or some thing like it).

Good Morning Berliyoz, and welcome to Seven Forums.

When you get to step 8 in the tutorial, you can select Let me choose to be able to backup only the file you want backed up.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
