  • You can only configure backup to use a supported device and online storage is not supported.

  • Here are the instructions to clear the current backup plan and save a new one. Note that the *only* valid destinations for OneCare backup are:

    CD\DVD, External Hard Drive, Network Share, some Flash Memory devices.

    You cannot backup to an online storage service (with the exception of the extra charge Photo Backup service within OneCare that uses Microsoft's servers) or an internal hard drive on the same PC. You cannot backup to eSATA drives in most cases as they are seen as internal drives to Windows.

     

    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.
