Configuring your backup plan/location: Type of external hard drive I am using "not recommended" message RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased Windows Live One Care today as well as a Western Digital My Book 320GB External Hard Drive.  After installing One Care, I went to configure the backup plan and location and received a message (warning) that the type of device I am using is not a recommended backup location and it wanted me to backup to DVDs instead.  Why did this warning pop up?  I wonder if there are conflicting programs 'cause Memeo Auto Sync and Auto Backup are installed and enabled.  I backed up EVERYTHING to my external hard drive using Memeo (this was before I bought One Care later today).

    Has anyone else encountered this message? Can I simply ignore it and have One Care automatically back up everything to the F:\ location (external hard drive)?

    Any advice or help much appreciated.

  • Hello Jonathan, I'm not sure why you would see that message but because you are using Memeo for backup and it is more feature rich than One Care backup I recommend turning One Care backup off.
