Defining a drive-based backup

Hi everybody,

When I have applied these steps for the first time after I have installed Norton Ghost:

Defining a drive-based backup Define a drive-based backup to take a shapshot of your entire hard drive.To define a drive-based backup
  1. On the Home or Tasks page, click Run or Manage Backups.
  2. In the Run or Manage Backups window, click Define New.

    If you have not yet defined a backup, the Easy Setup dialog appears instead.

3- Click Back up my computer, and then click Next.

I have noticed that when I reached to  the Recovery point type options that Recovery point set (recommended) is not activated to be chosen, but the Independent recovery point is automatically selected.

If you have a look at my screenshot above, you will be seeing that recovery point set option is disabled because you have already assigned a selected drive to an existing recovery point set backup job. You can only have one recovery points set defined for each drive.

I have really created recovery point set with Norton Ghost to the same destination which I have done now. However, I have restored my computer from the Factory Recovery. Then,  the Norton Ghost removed. So, Recovery points I created before became unassigned to this drive(destination).
