  • In order to use Centralized Backup, your computer must be a Hub computer in your OneCare Circle, "hosting" the backup location for the Circle.

    To use Centralized backup, change your backup plan by resetting it and then following the configuration wizard to use Centralized Backup.

    To reset the plan:

    Open OneCare

    Click Change Settings

    backup tab

    Click Configure Backup

    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, configure backup and click Change Settings in the lower left once again.

     

    In Help, type Centralized Backup for detailed instructions on how to proceed with the configuration.
