Windows 7 Professional How to backup THE SD card (NOT To)


  • I have a ASUS EEE Tablet that I love, and use as my primary computer.

    Unfortunately, the internal drive is only 64GB, so I also installed a 64GB SD card which I use as my primary storage device.

    I want to use Windows 7 Professional to backup the SD Card (which is drive D:).

    Unfortuntely, Windows Backup does not display d: (the SD Card) as a source that can be backed up.

    Note that my destination is a network share on my home LAN.

    Now do I get Windows 7 Professional to backup my SD Card?



    Thanks, Robert

  • Perhaps the backup does recognize SD as removable medium. Perhaps by flipping removable bit the situation changes.

    Workaroud: Scheduled script or third party software that backups removable media automatically.

  • Hi Robert

    I know this is an old thread, but wondering if you ever found a solution?  I'm facing the same issue on Windows 8 where I'm unable to backup the SD card with the backup utility as the volume does not appear within the backup application to select it.
