My netbook runs Windows 7 Starter. I have successfully backed this up in the past. I may have upgraded the external drive I used for backups subsequent to this.
Now when I go to
Control Panel\System and Security\Backup and Restore and see the "Back up or restore your files" screen and the "Back up now" button is disabled. The "Backup location" is "Expansion Drive (E:)", which although the Backup screen lists as disconnected, I'm able to browse right now with Explorer - it's definitely plugged in.
Edit: the restore program can see and understand the existing backup on the drive, and it's willing to restore that backup.
How did I break this, and how do I fix it? Is there a way to backup to a network drive even if I'm using Windows 7 Starter?
Also: why does Windows call it both "Back up" and "Backup" on the same screen?
