Acronis true image backup advice

  hermitcrab 21:36 03 Aug 2013

Hi, I have been using Acronis True Image to back up my data to my external 250gb drive. I thought I had set it up to make one full back up and then back up only files that were new or changed. I now see I have practically filled the drive with backups some of which are 12-15gb a time. I cannot work out how I set things up to just back up changes as they occur,or isn't this possible. Any help appreciated. Thanks

I had same problem with incremental backups, so now do a full backup weekly with a different file name for each two week period.

It over writes the one from two weeks ago so I always have last weeks backup and the weeks before.

Mine is done on a Friday so now have yesterdays and july 26th

I have in the past tried both incremental and differential backups using Acronis but have settled on FULL backups every three weeks or so, but certainly when there is any dramatic changing of programme installation/update. I back up to an additional internal 500GB HDD and a 500GB external HDD. Belt and braces plus a belt.
