My c drive became to full and the system saved my whole "user profile" (desktop) to "backup setting and created a new local user profile in the same user name.

How can i change this back. change "backup to local"

i included a "screen shot" to explain in addition to the below text.....

start menu. then >
programs. then >
accessories. then >
system tools. then >
Cluck system restore.
  > left hand side there is a link to click "system restore settings" which will open the "system properties" window.

click "advance" in the "system properties" window to view the 3 sub-groups
  #1. Performance #2. User Profiles #3. start up and recovery.

click #2 User Profiles to view "User profile"..... but then what??????????
the new window will open but only indicates one of the two option available and only the cancel button can be clicked

i would like to restore the "back up of User "master Oates"
