Windows Live One Care Backup Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 Internal Hard Drives #2 Hard Drive is setup for Data Storage Drive. When I try to Backup Files with Windows Live One Care It does not give me the Option to backup to the #2 Hard Drive. It only gives me option to backup to CD-DVD Drive or External Hard Drive.

    Why can't I backup to #2 Hard Drive?

  • Hello

    I'm running Windows XP. I tried the Work around with Map network Drive Left it At Z

    When I tried to set it for Backup I get Message Saying, There is another Session Connected to the Drive etc. Windows must Close other Session Click Yes to Close But it Fails to close other Session. I must still be doing something Wrong.

  • I would probably not map the drive, but point to the Share this way:

    \\computer\share\folder

  • Hi.

     

    I run Windows XP Home and am having the same problem. I would like to backup on to my own secondary internal hard drive. Can anyone tell me how to do it with XP? Thanks!!
