Windows 7: Backup to an external harddisk

31 Aug 2013   #1

Backup to an external harddisk


Control Panel > Backup > then I chose a folder in C: to back it up to an external hard disk. Now I want to change to schedule from every Sunday to everyday, can I do that? How?

My second question every time the backup happens does it replace the old file for the back up in my external hard disk? because I did many backups and it seems that there is only one file in my hard disk!
