Windows 7: Backup location selection duplicated

09 Mar 2013   #1

Backup location selection duplicated


For some reason all the locations are duplicated when selecting what to backup. This has occurred just after a clean install of windows 7, and the only thing I can think that would have cause it is moving my files (app data, music, documents, etc) to a different parition. Any ideas on what actually caused it, and how to sort it out?

Just looked at it again and seems to have sorted itself out. Still no idea what caused it though, still open to suggestions of a cause for it.
