First backup - live one care can't recognize flash drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just bought a 2 GB flash drive and tried to do a backup for the first time.  I read through some of the previous advice and changed my settings to configure the backup.  But even though Live One Care was able to recognize my other flash drive (not enough space, so I got a bigger one), it won't recognize the new one.  Keeps saying it's not connected.  I'm not tech-savvy, so if you could walk me through this using really simple instructions, I'd appreciate it.  Also, I have Windows Vista on this computer (which is way more trouble than it's worth, btw), but I don't know if that has anything to do with this problem.  Thanks.

  • Since you are trying to change the backup device, try the following steps:

    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.
