I have accidentally backed up my c drive to my c drive i.e I had only used 74Gb of my 160Gb internal drive now its telling me i've used about 158Gb.

Use the prog you used to backup with to find the folder containing the backup and delete it...

Just delete the folder you put the backup in,

Why not back up to the external hard drive first, as you intended, and then delete the copy on C:Then at least you have the backup if anything goes wrong.

Just delete the folder you have named jules bkc, THE END.. easy innit..

What i suggest you do then julius44 if you intend to use this prog in the future read the user manual so you do not come unstuck...

You have now got three threads running on this subject. It might be a good idea to mark the other two as resolved otherwise confusion will reign ;-)

Just drag it from the desktop to the external drive.
Once on the external drive delete the one on the desktop.
