But did anyone really use Vista's backup. I didn't see this thread when it was originally posted, but I have to agree with the OP - it's a completely worthless piece of software from the department of dumbing down that took over with Vista and seems to still
be in charge of Win7.
People that want a good backup can download Crashplan for free.
Actually, one of the primary reasons for me upgrading from Vista to 7 was that they restored functionality to the Backup and Restore application, such as the ability to backup specific folders and files. Additionally, the ability to back up to a network
location actually works now. Windows 7's backup/restore application is much, much better than Vista's. Vista's was indeed a complete joke.
