Set All The Backup Options In Windows XP!

When Using the Windows interface.

1. Open Backup.

The Backup Utility Wizard starts by default, unless it is disabled.
2. Click the Advanced Mode button in the Backup Utility Wizard.
3. Click the Tools menu, then click Options.
4. On the General tab, set the options you want.

Side Notes:

- To start Backup, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup.

- Selecting Compute selection information before backup and restore operations estimates the number of files and bytes that will be backed up or restored during the current backup or restore operation. This information will be calculated and displayed before the backup or restore begins.

- Selecting Use the catalogs on the media to speed up building restore catalogs on disk indicates that you want to use the on-media catalog to build the on-disk catalog for restore selections. This is the fastest way to build an on-disk catalog. However, if you want to restore data from several tapes, and the tape with the on-media catalog is missing, or you want to restore data from media that is damaged, you should not select this option. Backup will then scan your entire backup set (or as much of it as you have), and build an on-disk catalog. This could take several hours if your backup set is very large.

- Selecting Verify data after the backup completes checks the backed-up data and the original data on your hard disk to be sure that the data is the same. Some files in use may cause verification errors, but you can generally ignore these errors. If there are a significant number of verification errors, there may be a problem with the media or the file you are using to back up data. If this occurs, you should use different media or designate another file, and you should run the backup operation again.

- Selecting Back up the contents of mounted drives backs up the data that is on a mounted drive. If you select this option, and you back up a mounted drive, the data that is on the mounted drive will be backed up. If you do not select this option, and you back up a mounted drive, only the path information for the mounted drive will be backed up.

- Selecting Show alert message when I start Backup and Removable Storage is not running displays a dialog box when you start Backup and Removable Storage is not running. Backup will then start Removable Storage automatically. If you primarily back up data to a file, and you save the file to a floppy disk, a hard disk, or any type of removable disk, you do not need to select this box. If you primarily back up data to a tape, or other media that is managed by Removable Storage, you should select this box.

- Selecting Show alert message when I start Backup and there is compatible import media available displays a dialog box when you start Backup and there is new media available in the Import media pool. If you primarily back up data to a file, and you save the file to a floppy disk, a hard disk, or any type of removable disk, you do not need to select this box. If you primarily back up data to a tape, or other media that is managed by Removable Storage, you should select this box.

- Selecting Show alert message when new media is inserted into Removable Storage displays a dialog box when new media is detected by Removable Storage. If you primarily back up data to a file, and you save the file to a floppy disk, a hard disk, or any type of removable disk, you do not need to select this box. If you primarily back up data to a tape, or other media that is managed by Removable Storage, you should select this box.

- Selecting Always move new import media to Backup pools automatically moves new media that is detected by Removable Storage to the Backup media pool. If you primarily back up data to a file, and you save the file to a floppy disk, a hard disk, or any type of removable disk, you do not need to select this box. If you you want all new media to be available to the Backup program only, and no one is using Removable Storage to manage new media, you should select this box.
