Which Backup Option Do I Use To Do This...

Post by Ernster » Wed Apr 16, 2014 5:00 am

Hi there

I tried using the smart backup option but its not doing what I want.

I have it setup to backup daily but currently its creating a whole new backup folder each day. As you can imagine this is not necessary and uses up to much hard drive space.

What I want is for the software to modify the original backup file and just backup anything that changes day to day. So I want to work with only one file the whole time, not have multiple backup folders/files every day.

Is this possible? From reading it doesnt seem that either differential or incremental will do what I want either

PS: I noticed yesterday that the backup was performed 2 times - several hours apart, why did this happen? It should be just once per day.

Thanks for your help.
