    I need help to change the schedule I have already created for a System Image Backup. How do I get into schedule settings to change it?

    Unfortunately you can't (easily). You make a system image from the "File History" screen you have to do it manually.

    You could schedule something like this with task manager

    Code:
    wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:E: -include:C: -allCritical -quiet
    But probably you'd be better off using Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download or similar really.

    I use it - it is pretty good. I think so anyway.
