Goto settings>Cotrol Panel then open scheduled task. You can add scheduled task then scheduled task wizard will appear on screen then just follow the instruction carefully. Then look for application "Backup". Then fill-up correctly before clicking next button until it will finish.

See some good example maybe this is related to your backup option.

Does seagate external hard drive back up the whole system each time it backs up or only new data?


Step 1:
It will depend on which back up program you have or selected usually it will back up the entire system.
Scheduled backups are an integral part of any effective disaster recovery plan. The Windows Backup Utility is offered in a free download on Microsoft's website and, while it is not the most feature-rich tool on the market, the Windows Backup Utility will back up files to hard disk, CD-Recordable (CD-R) or tape at the times and dates specified for the scheduled job. Editing scheduled jobs can be easily done. Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of the window. Select "All Programs." Choose "Accessories" and "System Tools." Select "Backup." Click the hyperlink "Advanced Mode" in the "Backup or Restore Wizard" window. Choose the "Scheduled Jobs" tab. Click on the icon in the calendar for the job you want to edit. Select the "Properties" button from the "Scheduled data" tab. Choose the "Schedule" tab. Select the task schedule from the drop-down box beneath "Schedule Task." Set the start time by clicking the up and down arrows in the box under "Start Time." Choose the "Settings" tab. Select the desired options using the check boxes under "Scheduled Task Completed," "Idle Time" and "Power Management." Click the "OK" button. Click the "OK" button in the "Scheduled Job Options" window. Type the user name used to run the job in the space beside "Run as" in the "Set Account Information" window. Type the password and confirm the password. Click the "OK" button. Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the "Back up utility" window.

how to back up a hard drive


Determine how much space you need.

The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.


You can do this in a couple of ways.

Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."


This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.


If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.

Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.


Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.

This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.


Choose a backup method. Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.


There are advantages and disadvantages to all.

An external drive is convenient because you can plug it into other computers and immediately transfer or copy files without needing the Internet or having to worry at all about security.


However you have to carry the drive with you and always face the remote possibility that both your computer and the hard drive would break.


Data disks provide the same advantages and disadvantages as external hard drives: portability, but the possibility of theft or breakage.

You can also use an online backup service.


These services range in price depending on the amount of storage.

The advantage of an online service is that you can access your files from anywhere there is Internet, and it is generally cheaper, especially for small amounts of service.


Also, you don't need to carry or store another piece of equipment.

The disadvantage is your backup is stored on the service's external server, so security is a potential issue.


Back up your files. Once you have chosen your method of backup, do not forget the most important step: back up your files.


For external media, go into "My Computer" and double-click the "C" drive to open it.

Select all the files if backing up your entire hard drive, or select your "Backup" folder if just backing up your important files.


Holding your "CTRL" key, drag your selected files to your back up source, either your external hard drive or data disk drive.


Release your mouse button and "CTRL" key and allow the files to be copied onto your backup media.


Hope this helps.

What type of Back up involves selecting the files you want to back up as well as when you want them to backed up?


I'm not sure what exactly are you asking, but here are the possible backup scenarios in Windows 2000
  • Normal - Saves files and folders and shows they were backed up by clearing the archive bit.
  • Copy - Saves files and folders without clearing the archive bit.
  • Incremental - Saves files and folders that have been modified since the last backup. The archive bit is cleared.
  • Differential - Saves files and folders that have been modified since the last backup. The archive bit is not cleared.
  • Daily - Saves files and folders that have been changed that day. The archive bit is not cleared.
You can use Scheduler to point the time you want the backup to be done.

I have two Seagate external drives but I dont' know how to set them up to do what I bought them for. 1. I want that plugged into my hub for my lap top all the time so it backs up automatically at least...


Hello,
You have number of options to implement this backup setup. If you are not interested in archived backup that you can't access without Restore option, then easiest solution is to use free Microsoft program SyncToy. SyncToy allows to copy, sync or echo files between folders. Setup is very easy and you need create pairs of folders for example pictures folder(s) on your laptop can be paired with pictures folder(s) on your new external drives. After you setup all needed folder pairs you can run backup manually.
To implement scheduled backup you will need to use another Microsoft Task Scheduler. you can find all the details in this blog

Backup


My Dear Dolly,

Do you know how time consuming this task is?
Well, as it is, I haven’t got anything exiting to right now, so what the heck.

Log in to your Domain Controller as administrator.

Click Start -> Run and type ntbackup
Click the Advanced Mode link
Click Backup Wizard
Click Next
Make sure Back up everything on this computer is selected and click Next

You can backup to a file, you place it wherever you want, just make sure you name it Friday and click Next.

Click Advanced.
Make sure Normal is selected as type of backup and click Next.

Check the box Verify data after backup and click Next (You will most likely have errors when the backup is completed and verified. This is because System State data is changed all the time. If there are too many errors, there might be problems with the file you are using to back up data.)
Click Replace the existing backups and click Next.

Click Later and in the Job Name box type Friday Nights, click Set Schedule.

In Schedule Task select Weekly and as Start time 08:00 PM (or whenever you want the backup to be scheduled). Make sure it’s set to run every 1 week and on Fridays. Click OK.

You will be prompted to run the task as a user. Use a user with privileges to backup data.
Click Next
Click Finish.

I don't know how to access my Western Digital Backup. I have no icon to click.


hi

If you have a WD Media Center, Dual-option Combo, or Dual-option USB external hard drive, you can use the Retrospect Express software that comes with the drive to create a backup schedule that will backup your data onto the drive.

To setup an automatic duplicate schedule in Retrospect Express 6.5 on a PC, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Start Retrospect Express by pressing the Automatic Backup button on the front of your Media Center external hard drive after you have installed the Retrospect software and powered on and connected the drive.

  2. You will be presented with the Western Digital Automatic Backup Wizard. Click Next to continue.

  3. Highlight the drive(s) that contains the data you wish to backup and click Next. To select multiple drives or folders, hold down the Ctrl key and make your selections.

  4. You will have a choice to backup your documents only or all files, make your selection and click Next.

  5. Highlight the drive you wish to copy your data to and click Next.

  6. You will have the option to run the data duplication daily or once a week. Make your selection and click Next.

    • If you choose a daily duplication, you will have to select the time that you'd like the duplication to start each day, then click Next.

    • If you choose a weekly duplication, you will have to select the day and time that you'd like the duplication to start, then click Next.

    • If you wish to run the duplication one time when you are finished setting up the schedule, check the Start the backup now box and click Finish. Otherwise, just click Finish.

    • You will see the Automatic backup button glow a solid blue. When the blue light is on it indicates that the automatic duplication schedule is enabled and your duplication is set to run at the scheduled time.
For the duplication to run successfully, you must have both the computer and drive powered on and connected correctly at the scheduled time.

Error copying file or folder


One of the most important yet overlooked elements of PC maintenance is data backup. If you do not perform regular backups, chances are your productivity will eventually suffer from data losses or a failed Windows installation.

All versions of Windows after 3.1 ship with a free backup utility called Microsoft Backup. It is not the best backup program available, but it may be sufficient for your needs. (Backup is better in later versions of Windows. Microsoft recommends Win98/Me users purchase a third-party utility.) If you want more control over your backups, consider purchasing a third-party program.

Backup is part of the System Tools utility. However, Setup does not install it by default in Win98/Me/XP Home. If you cannot locate Backup, visit the Microsoft support site and query for article No. 152561 (Win98), No. 264541 (WinMe), or No. 302894 (WinXP Home).

In Win98/Me, click Start, select Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Backup. To create and run a backup, click the Create A New Backup Job radio button and click OK. Follow the prompts to create a full or partial backup. If you want to create a backup set and run it later or run an existing backup set, open Backup and click the Open An Existing Backup Job radio button and click OK. You can now access the main Backup dialog box.

In Win2000/XP, navigate to the System Tools utility and select Backup. Click the Backup Wizard button. If you do not see a Backup Wizard button, click the Welcome tab. In WinXP, the wizard will start automatically if you are in wizard mode. Follow the prompts to create your backup set.

When you reach the last dialog box, Completing The Backup Wizard, you can click the Advanced button to create a backup schedule (this option is not available in Win98/Me). When you reach the When To Back Up dialog box, select the Later radio button and click the Set Schedule button. Perform data backups on a schedule that is appropriate to the importance of your files (once a week is a common timeframe). You should also perform a system backup at least once a month.

If you do not want to use the wizard, or you are working with an existing backup, open Backup and click the Backup tab to access the main Backup dialog box.
