    Looking for THE forum for Macrium Reflect 7.1


    Not sure if this forum is the place for this question, but I'm trying to learn how to create an incremental backup using MR 7.1. I haven't found any other place that has been helpful. Until now, I have, for years, made full images of my drives for backup. But it takes so long that I want to learn how to make incremental backups. Can anybody out there help me or point me in the right direction? Thank you........

    Well, the simplest way is to just select back up type Grandfather Father Son, that will make all three types of backups full, Differential and incremental.
    Select disk to Image
    Select where you want to store your backups Next 1 select template for your back up
    Choose what time you want to schedule
    Advanced Auto Verify Image.

    If all you want is incremental 1. select Incremental backups.
    That will create one full and then increments until you tell it to make a new Full.

    OK, I name my full image backups with a descriptive name which includes the date, and the folder on my external drive where I'm storing the image. Also, at present, I'm storing more than on full image on that drive. If I do incremental, do I have to keep the original and all incrementals associated with that original in a separate folder from my other originals?

    Is this another way to make incrementals?

    Thank you all!!! Oh, BTW, what is the reliability of all the incrementals staying attached to the full backup when it comes time to do a restore? Many years ago, I had an issue like this happen to me. If only one incremental (or differential) gets corrupted, you're SOL!!! Any comments on this?

    I had one full and 11 incrementals for one of my restores few days ago, no issue. I think that would be related to the disk you store the images on rather than the backups themselves. I have since just switched to FULL and reduced the backups to 3x a week instead of daily and have it del the old backup prior to making a new.
