comment Change scheduled windows7 backup setting
Thanks, you have to navigate to "task scheduler lib->windows->windows backup", it isn't listed in the "running tasks" and have to start the task scheduler as admin to see it.

comment Change scheduled windows7 backup setting
@soandos - that's the point - how? There is a 'change settings' link but it just prompts you to create a new backup

comment Compress and then encrypt, or vice-versa?
@Olli - not necessarily if the compression scheme adds known text. In the worst case imagine if it put a known 512byte header on the front of the data and you were using a block mode encryption.

comment Can my older computer be connected to a newer 32" Sony Bravia LCD television?
An adapter is fine if it's just a connector issue. Converting VGA to composite video, hdmi or s-video requires a bit more. VGA to HDMI (or v.v.) needs almost a computer!
