Unable to get FBackup to add source files in Windows 7 64-bit unless I use the pre-selected plug-ins. Tried using Windows Vista on another machine and it worked fine. I could "ADD FOLDER" perfectly in Vista. Not so, with Windows 7 64-bit. Please help with this and with the inability to select multiple folders at the same tine for one (1) backup instead separate backups for each folder. Thanks.

UPDATE: I went back and tried one more time only this time it worked. I clicked on MY Documents, MY Music, MY Pictures and MY Videos and they transferred to the back up menu. Apparently, you cannot use just LIBRARIES or DOCUMENTS system folders.

I'm glad you found the problem with the sources.

To add multiple folders, please open Backup Properties->Sources.

From Windows Explorer you can drag and drop multiple files/folders to Sources page.
