I haven't used it, but it sounds like it's checking the files it
already backed up on the drive you specify, and is wondering if you
really want to do it again.
Maybe you have the wrong media type set (maybe it thinks you are going
to load a blank DVD instead of a hard drive).
Maybe there is a setting to verify you always want to overwrite the
previous job; I doubt that would be the default.
Or maybe you just need to get it to rename the folder it backs up to,
so that it won't have to overwrite the previous backup. That's how most
of the Mac tools work.
