    seven,

    Since this is a new PC, it will take a little while before it's saved to OneDrive. Keep checking every few days to see if it's there by the end of the week. It only saves your synced settings to OneDrive, and nothing else. It's not related to a system image.

    I have a question about this whole OneDrive thing. When I go to the start menu and go to OneDrive, I only find documents and pictures, I don't see the system backup stuff. When I use the link that you provided, I can see everything that is on OneDrive. How can I link to that area on OneDrive from the start menu?

    Hello Rocky,

    You could use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to create a shortcut for that link that you will be able to "Pin to Start".

    For example, use this below to create a shortcut to open the link with Internet Explorer.

    Code:
    "%ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" https://onedrive.live.com/Options/DeviceBackups

    You should see something like the image below once you have the backup sorted out (I have blanked out my personal info)

    Yes Atomcrusher, i see that, strange however that backup is made so slow, also another question, this backup will take space available from Onedrive ? or it does not have anything to do with the space already available ?
