    Yes, George, you would iinitially start with a full backup of your drives, then it could subsequently make backups corresponding to changes since the last backup.

    After reviewing the tutorial, let me know if you still have further questions. There are some good tutorials on YouTube also - nothing like watching someone go through the process.

    No, not yet, have been busy for a couple of hours ordering food and medication... I will take a look now. Thanks, Steve.

    Steve, I have reviewed the tutorial. It seems as a very complex and comprehensive package full of technical terms and names I simply don't understand. For people who are familiar with this I am sure it is easy, but I feel lost i most parts. Having said that I am sure it is one of the best back-up systems available. I can, though, understand PC-Tidningen's conclusion of being an excellent program, but complicated to install and operate. And I guess there is no Scandinavian (Swedish/Norwegian) version... I don't feel comfortable starting this, but I don't feel comfortable returning to the old Ashampoo Back Up either. I need to understand the MR better before I decide.

    Togel:

    In reality, you may not need differential or incremental image capabilities.

    It is quite possible that "full" images are all you need.

    You can make a simple full image with fewer than 10 mouse clicks in Macrium, accepting the defaults it offers.

    Image restoration is a separate and distinct operation that requires a bit more fiddling and study.

    It's more important that you at least make an image as soon as possible and keep it on hand. Worries about restoration can come at a later date.

    The image file will be quite large. Probably at least 15 GB. Possibly 100 or more. Save it anywhere it will fit OTHER THAN on C.

    George,
    Did you try looking at a few videos on Macrium Reflect? I find that very helpful to learn new concepts.

    Thanks ignatzatsonic and thanks Steve. My old backup program (Ashampoo) did a full backup every time. This was very inconvenient and time consuming as it took several hours to do. I don't want that. That is why I just want to make one complete backup as a start and after that add new files and changes in old files since last run. If I understand this correctly only differential backup does that...

    No, Steve, I did not look at the videos yet as I did not understand the technical terms used in Kari's presentation. I just found it too complicated. Having said that I am not sure I will find anything easier to understand which is a also a good alternative to MR. In the mean time I will copy my files to the Verbatim disk so I have a copy just in case, and spend a more time to understand the terms used in MR.

    Cmon' young guy, forget all the technical terms and just watch someone use Macrium Reflect on a video - it won't be as technically overwhelming. After you do that, you can choose to throw it in the rubbish bin if you still don't like it

    Hello Paul,
    Thank you for your input. Yes, absolutely helpful. No doubt it will cover my needs for back-up. Just the two question marks I mentioned - incremental back-up and purchase on Internet.. Thanks again.
    You are VERY welcome.

    Just to add to steve108's post with regard to Videos . . .
