I have made certain that the settings are correct, but the back-up files are not being updated. I have a mess in my folders /directory from the back-ups - and I may just be unable to find the latest back-up! i do get a message re: last back-up date/time, so apparently, it is happening.
I think maybe I should uninstall and reinstall WD Backup, and possibly may need to delete the earlier back-up files, but will lose some files which have since been eliminated from my computer.
Please answer these 2 questions!
1. Can I keep an earlier version of my back-up files and keep those safe if I create a new back up set of files, which will in future be where my files back-up?
2. If I can get this straightened out, can anyone tell me where I went wrong and why so many levels of folders were created?
This is some background:
my folders look like this:
my comp name
NkjdfaDfiojfajdfk a lot of random letters&few #
Volume (more random stuff)
my comp name
and the other folders you’d expect
Volume (same # as above) - but at the level of History folder above & with the same folder structure underneath – BUT the DOCUMENTS folder does not have the same number of files and folders!! The top set has unusable files, with the same name when matched up with later files, but with extensions to names (LAST appears in many) and represented by a blank icon (not Word or Xcel icon).
Laying this out has given me some ideas, but What the hell is going on??
