Can anyone help - in using briefcase, it used to be easy to backup to an external drive, but now gives errors on certain files.  means I can't do a 'suplementary backup' but must re-backup e.g. the whole of mydocs.  Any ideas?

    Accepted Solution

    Briefcase has always been dodgy for me . . The Windows Backup  application will allow incremental backups.

    I backup using the Files and Settings Transfer wizard . . but there is not incremental feature with that.

    Thanks, simple - give up on briefcase, and work around the 4GB Windows backup bit
