Acronis backup

  Muergo 09:32 17 Aug 2009

After initial complete backup, I now have over 200 incremental files.
Should I now refresh the whole entry by making another complete backup to start from scratch or just keep accumulating extra files?
I have never had the need to use any of them, how do I see them, when I try to access one it just wants to reinstall, I would like to see what's on it.

Definitely do a complete back up so that you have one master file again. The thought of recovering 200 incrementals makes me shudder!

I only ever make Full backups, on a fortnightly basis. IMHO Incrementals and Differentials are a waste of time, not only that but if any one of them gets corrupted in any way, then the whole lot are useless.

It does not take long to make a Full backup - not forgetting to also run the Validation too.
