BACKUP takes forever --- can't be doing INCREMENTAL BACKUP RRS feed

  • Question

  • BACKUP takes forever  ---  can't be doing INCREMENTAL BACKUP.

    I don't give a @#$!% about media networking or whatever and  I should not be STOPPING SERVICES to to get incremental backup to work. 

    SIMPLY put an option on BACKUP AND RECOVERY to do INCREMENTAL BACKUP.  If WIN7 (64 bit) sees a problem when I check that --- it can THEN prompt me to do something.

    WHere the h-ell is the ATTRIBUTE BIT that I'm used to so I can figure out more about what is going on !
