You will receive a backup notice in the taskbar on your computer for the following reasons:

  • A new hard drive is added to your computer. The person who administers your network needs to run the Customize Backup for the computer wizard to include or exclude the hard drive for future backups.

  • A scheduled backup did not complete successfully.

  • There is not a recent successful backup. The number of days since the last successful backup is included in the notice.
