how can i change my back up loc RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi all, I have read the last post, but need a little more help please. I originally backed up my first time on a dvd disk directly from my laptop, after reading that it is safer to back up from an external hard drive I then backed up to a multi media hhd. that has now been curuppted. I am now trying to back up to my home computer, but one care does not seen to allow me to change where i want to change back up. it just keeps sayin that my external hhdrive isnt connected. so how can I tell one care that i want to back up to a different location please? as it seen that it does not give me that option. thankyou for your time

  • Hello, Mark, try this:

    Open OneCare

    Click Change Settings

    backup tab

    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 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.
