Acronis True Image - how to incrementally save?

  Dalglish2 15:59 17 Sep 2005


Ive successfully created an image but now want to do an incremental image so avoiding having to image the whole drive again.
Have tried and failed- as the program goes ahead and starts a fresh 18Gb image again !
Where am I going wrong?
Thanks guys

After the 1st full image, return to the 'create image, choose your drive as before and then the same destination as before (ie file name etc) and you then get the choice of Incremental, chose that at least, on mine, that does it!

Thanks AL

Followed your suggestion but whats confusing is that because I have 4 lots of 4Gb of data ie image files, the incremental (maximum compressed) image is still 20Gb suggesting the full image is being created.
Am i right in splitting the 16Gb original backup into smaller 4 Gb sizes to fit on a DVD?
If so, which of the 4 do I append the incremental image to?

Personally I don't use incremental back up but make a fresh back up each time. It's just as fast and you can retain any number of complete backups on your drive, deleting older ones as new ones are created. When you split the images in sections each section has a suffix starting 01 ie if it has split into 4 sections they will be be called, for example, Backup01, Backup02 etc. If you retain a number of images on your deive they will each need a different name (like Aug05, Sept05 etc.) to avoid overwriting.

Just pick latest of the full images, and ignore the sizes. When it has finished, in a v. v. short time, you will find the extra file on the drive you are using for your images, and it will, should, be small.
