I am running Dell Optiplex GX280 with Windows XP Professional SP2. I have automatic updates to Windows set on.
My Data Backup within "3-User McAfee Total Protection" does not work properly. I have the latest (yesterday) downloads of the product.
Aftere data backup is activated for the very first time it works allowing me to set the backup location to E: drive (Philips DVD+-RW DVD8631), add some non-standard file extensions, selec/de-selct deep and shallow folders and even begin the backup to the DVD.
Any of these will stop Data Backup to operate: - closing the program - finishing the first disk
When in "corrupted" mode data backup will not: - see my DVD drive when selecting bacup location - re-scan the files - close The only way to close the program is through Task Manager. Interesting is that the first attempt to close causes the window to minimize.
I have completely uninstalled, downloaded and re-installed the suite couple of times. I get the repetable results.
McAfee Virtual Technician reports "No problems" and a non-profesional peek into the logs show that everything is present and in good shape.
I used to run McAfee VirusScan Plus. I have purchased Total Protection only because it includes Data Backup.
