The following options are unavailable (grayed out) if you configure Microsoft Backup for MS-DOS or Microsoft Backup for Windows to back up to an MS-DOS path instead of a specific drive:
    Prompt Before Overwriting Used Diskettes
    Always Format Diskettes
The Use Error Correction On Diskettes option is grayed out under Microsoft Backup, but is unavailable under Microsoft Backup for Windows.

Setting the Backup To option to a specific drive rather than the MS-DOS Path makes these options available.
