I do have one more question. I came home from the Super Bowl tonight. I left my laptop on because I was in a rush before I went out. (I almost never do that) When I come home it says backup in progress. I look at the details and it is trying to backup to my Heroes of Might and Magic 3 disk in the E drive. WTF? I didn't ask it to backup. Any ideas why this is happening recently when I've had the computer for 11 months and have never had this happen before?

Hi Pat,

Double check using step 4 in the tutorial below by selecing the correct HDD for the scheduled backup for the destination HDD to create the backup to. That should change the backup settings and take care of it for you, but it will create another backup afterwards though.

Hope this helps,

Taskbar icon for backup indicates progress
While backing up my laptop using Win 7 Backup & Restore, I noticed that the icon in the taskbar has a green "shadow" that progresses across the icon as the backup progresses. I never noticed it before and thought it was a great feature. Am I the only one that never noticed that before?
