reset complete PC backup catalog RRS feed

  • Question

  • i've seen others asking about this, found the solution and thought i'd post i hopes that it helps others.


    the link provided below explains the problem (changing or reformatting external usb hard drive used for backup yet vista still thinks there are backups on that drive) and gives the solution at the end of the thread.

    note that you will have to use an elevated rights command prompt (right-click on command prompt icon and choose run as admin)


    wbadmin delete catalog

    to delete the history, but before doing so use

    wbadmin get versions

    to see what backup dates are stored in the catalog

    wbadmin /?

    to see what other commands you can use

    good luck!
