Windows 7: W-7 Backup not display the date prior Backup was run.

27 Dec 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
W-7 Backup not display the date prior Backup was run.

W-7 Backup and Restore has quit displaying the date of the prior backup. It used to display the date of the last backup I ran as well as the next one coming up. Now, as soon as I complete a file backup, it displays "Last Backup: Never" rather than the date of the backup that I just executed. This began after I had to put the brakes on an unauthorized loading of that lousy W-10 by pulling the plug on my pc and having it reload my W-7 home premium.

This agitates me since I don't want to have a failure if I were to need a system image rebuild. Appreciate suggestions.

Many of our members, including myself, prefer the free version of Macrium Reflect. I have used it for several years, never had a problem and it saved me twice.
