Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • On Care tells me next backup is off.  There doesn't seem to be anywhere to turn it on. It is not in the One Care Main Window that opens.  The only thing available is configure the backup, but not turn it on or do it now.

  • Have you ever configured backup? 

    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 if you see that choice

    Click your PC on the left.


    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" 

    Check the selection for "Turn on backup for this PC." if it is not checked

    Click Next and save the revised plan.
