Even smarter to read the manual ;) but accidents happen or we wouldn't need backup software inthe first place. ;)

Anyway, Backing up something from one drive to itself can be useful if you don't have your 2nd drive handy (left your usb at work?) but still want to save some stuff. Also, ATI has a provision for setting up a special logical partiton ona hard disk so folks with only one hard drive can still make backups (call the "secure Zone") but that won't help you if the physical harddisk goes bad so always best to backup to another location. YOu should be able to copy the backup file to another disk. YOu can then delete the backup in ATI (so it updates it's database). You could then restore form the backup a the very least by using the bootcd.

Note that when using the bootcd, which uses linux, drive letter assignments might not be the same as in windows so be sure you have the right disks selected before you restore. If you have more than one hdisk of hte same size and model, that gets a little trickier to do.

Answer to 2nd question:

If you have file that Win explorer can't delete, try this, it usually works:

create a file with a text editor or whatever and give the file the same name as the nuisance file but same in a diff location. Now mack a mydata backup inlcuding the newly made file. then restore the newly made file using the ATI option to restore to a new lcoatin and select the location of the nuisance file. Select the option overwrite existing files.
After the restore, the file metadata should be properly updated and you should be able to delete the file with explorer. This procedure shouldn't cause and file system problems.

This kind of problem used to happen in Win when the case in the name and file table weren't the same and it was a problem chkdsk and the file system in general wouldn't detect. But he fixc above should work.

Afterwards, rund a drive properties disk check jsut for luck.
