Reinstall and backing up RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    OneCare had a problem and required a reinstall. Once I did that, it seems to have "forgotten" that it already did an initial backup of my computer and wants to start over (12 DVDs!)... Is there a way to get it to start backing up where it left off?

     

    Thanks!

  • Unfortunately, no. The act of reinstalling completely removes and resets the database on the PC that contains the tracking database for the current backup set. This means that OneCare thinks this is the first backup, so it creates a new database on the PC and requests all of the initial backup configuration information again.
