Windows 7 Backup Questions
Posted on 2010-08-27
Hi folks, I've been using Windows 7 Backup for a while, and generally speaking I like it.
Recently I realized the space used by the WindowsBackupImage folder was around 200 GB, so I deleted all but the monthly backups, which freed up 170 GB. Unfortunately the space used by Windows Backup remained the same. Is there any way to shrink this image?
Also, how can one get access to view the contents of the WindowsBackupImage folder? It's so annoying to get "access denied" to anything when my account is already in the Administrator group. IMO, if Microsoft wants to keep dangerous, ignorant users away from system files then the default group for their accounts should be Power Users, or something with restricted access.
Many thanks in advance for any responses,
