To set restore options
The Backup or Restore Wizard starts by default, unless it is disabled.
Click the Advanced Mode link on the Backup or Restore Wizard.
Click the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Restore tab, do one of the following:
Click Do not replace the file on my computer if you do not want the restore operation to copy over files that are already on your disk.
Click Replace the file on disk only if the file on disk is older if you want the restore operation to replace older files on your disk with newer files from your backup.
Click Always replace the file on my computer if you want the restore operation to replace files on your disk regardless whether the backup files are newer or older.
- Click Do not replace the file on my computer if you do not want the restore operation to copy over files that are already on your disk.
To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.
To start Backup, click Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Backup.
