    How to delete double copy of back up


    I am not sure how it happened, but there are two identical back up copies on my external hard drive.
    I tried to delete one by right clicking on the drive, but there is no delete icon on the list.
    How can I accomplish that.


    PS these are back ups made with windows10

    :)

  2. How to back up and restore wifi connection settings on Windows 10 laptop?

    Please advise how to back up and restore wifi connection settings using a Windows 10 laptop?

    In Windows 7 it was possible to double click the setting and then go to properties which then gave a 'copy connection settings to usb' option. Doing this in Windows 10 only gives the option to delete the connection. Right clicking does nothing.
