  • You can only configure Centralized Backup if the destination device is a hard drive or network Share formatted to NTFS. If you are planning to use either as the destination and you've configured backup for a single PC and now wish to change it, try the following:

    Open OneCare

    Click Change Settings

    backup tab

    Click Configure Backup

    Click change settings in the lower left

    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.

    Configure backup as desired.

    Save the revised plan with the new selection.

  • If you are backing up to CD/DVD, you must skip the Centralized Backup option as it can't be performed to a CD/DVD.
