Vista Home Premium Backup Failure
I have a bad backup set. When creating, I got an I/O error. How do I force
a fresh, brand new backup? It only wants to do an Incremental backup to my
already bad disks. I don't have even one good backup yet.
Any help much appreciated.

Re: Vista Home Premium Backup Failure
You should be able to go to Control Panel|Backup and Restore Center|Change
settings|Change backup settings (as you will see there is an option to start
a new, full backup). Start out with new clean discs.

By the way, I gave up on discs some time back: too many discs, takes too
long, too much hassle -- I bought an external USB hard drive for my backup
destination and it works automatically and smoothly.
