  • Connect and power on the new external drive, open One Care>Change Settings>Backup>Configure Backup>Change Settings. Under  "Your Backup Plan" and "Where" select Choose Device then "Change Location". One Care will scan for available devices and you can then select your new drive.

  • Changing the backup device will require you to start a new full backup. You may need to reset the backup plan, too.

    Open OneCare

    Click Change Settings

    backup tab

    Click Configure Backup

    Click change settings in the lower left

    Make sure that the first screen for Centralized Backup has "No Centralized backup" selected

    Click your PC on the left.

    Uncheck the selection for "Turn on backup for this PC."

    Click Next and save the revised plan.

     

    Go back to the backup tab, configure backup and click Change Settings in the lower left once again.

    Select your PC and click.

    Click Turn on backup

    Select the change location link and select the drive you want to use for backup

    Modify the schedule as desired for "When"

    Select the file types as desired for "What"

    Click next and save the revised plan with the new selection.
