Hello: Let me say right off the bat that I'm not a fan of Windows. It just happens at the moment that I need to set up a Windows 7 system, and namely to set up a local backup. Let me give you the specs: - Windows 7 Ultimate desktop - Internal HDD: 932GB - External HDD: 1.18TB Initially I set up the built in "Backup and Restore" tool to do the backups, but the person who uses this Windows 7 tells me that the backup works for about a month and then shows an error, "The disk that your backup is saved on doesn't have enough free space" and nothing is backed up since. Again, I'm not a fan of Microsoft, but I refuse to believe that they could sell a product that is dumb enough not to remove old backups to leave room for new ones. Anyway, there doesn't seem to be any option in the "Backup and Restore" to do that ... to the best of my knowledge. Although maybe someone will prove me wrong? So my question is, what is the best solution to do local backups on external hard drive on Windows 7? PS. I'm obviously looking for a "set it and forget it" type solution that doesn't require manual interaction. Is Microsoft capable of providing one?
