    OK Dick. I am not happy with auto back up's either. Could you send me the instructions to enable me to set up manual one's please?

    Is that MBR Disk 1 Toshiba the one you want to back up?

    First step would be to click on "image this disk" just below it.

    Notice that there are checkmarks in all 3 of the partitions shown for that first disk.

    That will take you to the next screen and you can post a screen shot of that if you want. There is a total of 4 or 5 different screens.

    Did this pop up automatically at the time you expected a backup to start? Or did you do it just to get a screenshot? I was looking for exactly what you were seeing when you expected a backup to start and run.

    Ron is way, way past creating a backup definition. This appears to be a different issue.

    Ron....you said the activity light was on. Research into a scheduled backup tells me you will get a 10 second pop-up window before it starts. Then that goes away. Then a completion message. No ongoing play-by-play of the backup. You've done this many times before. Isn't this what it would normally do?

    No Dick, I missed the first try and this time I never got any 10 second screen shot, nothing at all! I agree with you, a manual back up is definitely more positive and you know that it has been done. This is why I asked you if you would be kind enough to send me the instructions on how to set up a manual back up if It wont be to much trouble for you. I have caused enough already. We are just about to sit down for dinner but if you could send the info, I will try to put it all together. We are out tomorrow evening so I will come back on line on Wednesday evening about this time our time, would that be ok please?

    That's fine, Ron. Manual backup is very easy. I'll put something together for you. TC
