Windows 7: Windows 7 Backups

Windows 7 Backups

I'm trying to manage the backups I've made. It seems Windows 7 only labels them by date. I'd like to know what's in each backup, and print out a log of each backup like I could with XP. Just knowing what date the backup was made isn't enough

Not sure, but I think you would have to keep track manually, such as with an Excel spreadsheet or Word document.

It seems to be a bad idea to rename those files. You'd best leave them as Windows names them.

Yes, I wouldn't rename them. Just wanted to know if I had to keep track manually or what. Kind of a pain.....
