Re: Image backup
Complete PC Backup must be copied to either an external, removeable or
separate internal drive. Regarding "...I have done all my backups to drive
F before, ..." - evidently your procedure has changed - Complete PC Backup
does not backup the drive to which it is being copied.
Also Complete PC Backup backs up system files, however the file backup
utility does not and backups can be copied to internal drives. Are you
inadvertantly using file backup instead of Complete PC Backup?
Complete PC Backup only maintains one "copy" and it does not provide for
automatic backups - must be done manually (You can schedule reminders) -
recommended procedure is to to do a Complete PC Backup and then schedule
automatic file backups - not neccessary to do Complete PC Backups routinely
unless there are hardware/application changes.
