Windows Backup

Windows Backup is a very useful tool, however, it has two major problems: 

  • Windows Backup does not delete old backups.
  • Windows Backup only supports one drive.  This is OK for home users, but businesses need redundant backups.  Call us for more information on a backup script.

If you are running low on space on your backup drive, follow the instructions below to clean out old Windows backups.

  1. Plug in your backup drive
  2. Open the backup & restore centre.  You can find this by typing "backup" into your start menu.
  3. Click on "Manage Space"
  4. Click on "View Backups"
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the list & start deleting old backups.
