restore backup

[ Edited ]

I have no problems with installing, updating, making backup etc. although I am near 70 old.

I was checking Smartware during last ten days and for me this is good application(simple and friendly)

My problem is quite other. Is it logical that after restoring, I found on my internal HDD folders and files I earlier delete from HDD?

Next problem. In Settings I set History on 2. All previous versions of files I have changed, were restored on HDD.

Is it good? For me no, because after, for example a year, I must do restore and I will have a big job to delete all unneeded files and folders. What is Your opinion?

Forgive my not good english.


After few minutes I have an idea for WD Smartware team. Is it possible to insert two questions inside Smartware while restoring:

first- Copy deleted folders and subfolders; yes or no?

second- Copy previous versions of files; yes or no?
