Notifying One Care of backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • My One Care told me it was time to do a backup of my computer. I bought some DVD-R's and did the backup via Windows Backup. How do I notify One Care that the backup was done so that it will quit telling me I need to back up?

    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.

     

    Note, this disables backup in OneCare. If you wish to use Windows Backup instead of OneCare backup, the above procedure is the way to go. If you wish to use OneCare backup and be reminded when it is time to backup, instead of turning off backup per the above, make the selections for Where, What, and When for your PC and save the settings.
