External hard drive set up help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to use my external hard drive as a back up instead of the CD/DVD format. Can you help me how to do it? I found some answers on Windows Live help but I can't find the steps for some reason.

  • Hello juniorbiz, connect your external drive to your computer, open One Care>Change Settings>Backup>Configure Backup. Under "Your backup Plan" next to "CD/DVD Writer" select "Change Location", then select your external drive. If this does not work start a backup and choose to perform a new full backup and you should be able to change the backup destination.
