Changing Backup Location RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot change the backup location from external hot stick to external hardrive. I have completed the steps to change the backup configuration, but when I execute a backup, it looks for the old drive location. This occurs even after backup

  • Try turning backup off, remove the memory stick and have the external hard drive connected. Open One Care>Change Settings>Backup>Configure Backup, check "Turn on backup on this PC", then under "Your Backup Plan", Where" select "Change This". You should then be able to select a new backup location.
