I'm new and don't understand. looks like a old man problem. i did not want to backup my complete hd. i have a program i need to backup plus data. Such as pic etc. but can not find a way to choose to select just exaxctly what i want to backup so until i get a answer i will now try to backup the complete drive.
Dump the provided software. Use either Freebyte (a free program, simple and easy) or comodo (more options and the ability to do timed backups) I would do a complete backup once a month or so. Use the above program to do your data including your E-mail.
