Re: Lost the Backup Drive
07-07-2012 10:28 AM
My backup drive crashed and I have just replaced it. Despite having no backup because of this, all of the previously backed up files have green check marks.
I'm getting ready to re-backup my files on the new drive. Will the new backup backup all of the files with the green check mark or will the backup ignore them because of the check mark? Do I need to rest this in some fashion? Any other issues I'm overlooking?
Thanks in advance for the help.
Sorry to hear about the hardware failure.
To make sure that you get a full backup on your new drive create a new backup set. This will force the program to look at the drive and see that there are no files or recovery points existing. It should then make the first backup a full backup and do incrementals from then on according to your schedule.
