Hi. I have two almost identical Win 2007 machines. I am trying to backup from one PC and then restore the files to the other PC. On the first PC I’ve used “WD Backup” to make a backup plan. It shows up in WD Backup as the current backup plan. Then I use the “Backup Now” button to backup the files and it completes correctly.
Now I move the Passport Ultra to the second PC, which also has the WD Backup application installed. When I open “WD Backup” on the second PC and select “Restore” it says “There are no files to restore. You have not scheduled a backup plan”.
Shouldn’t WD Backup see the backup plan made on the first PC, and allow me to use that plan to recover the files to the second PC?
On the second PC if I select the Backup tab, I can create a backup plan matching the backup plan of the first PC, but then the only option seems to be to perform the backup. Which in this case would copy the second PC’s files to the passport. What I want to do is a restore, not a backup of the second PC.
Thanks for the help.
