Rescue and Recovery Drive letters - error message

2012-03-11, 9:49 AM

Trying to run Rescue and recovery after partitioning my hard drive results in the following error message:

 

"The last backup of this system included the following drive letters:

 

C:

 

Your system is currently backing up the following drive letters:

 

C:

E:

 

Please set the letters as they were previously and retry the backup. You may need to exclude partitions created since the last backup"

 

NOw I have changed the options to exclude E: but I was wondering is there any way to include it in backups - would I have to back up to a USB hard drive without any previous backups on it? And is it a good idea to use R&R to backup partitions?

 

Any advice much appreciated!

Sorted - needed a formatted backup USB disk and that worked fine.
