    Delete backup set in Vista

    Hello.
    How can I delete backup set created with Vista tool?
    If I simply erase files in my external backup HD, an error message appears
    when backup tool is running.
    So, I think correct procedure for delete backup it must exists!
    How it is possible select "differential backup" in place of "complete backup"?
    Thank's

    As I understand, when you make a new 'complete' backup the knowledge that
    the backup system has of the previous 'complete and differential set' is
    removed.
    That seems to be the way it is working on my system.

    Normally after the complete backup it then performs differential ones till
    you force or allow a new complete one. (There is supposed to be a prompt to
    do a complete after certain conditions, but has never happened on my
    system).
