    Hi All,
    Is there anyway to just back a folder instead of creating an image first and then using incremental feature?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Not with TI... the smallest unit you can backup is a partition. TI is great for backing up an entire partition or drive but not individual folders/files (although you can recover individual folders/files).

    For what you want to do, a file-by-file backup program is best; then again, why not simply copy the folder(s) to some other media (and if quite large, archive it with WinZIP or WinRAR)!

    Hello CodeHunter,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Acronis True Image cannot backup selected files or directories, because Acronis creates disk image it can only backup an entire drive or partition. Note that you can still restore individual files or folders from a backup image. Hopefully informed you well. If you have further questions concerning our software, please feel free to contact us again.

    Thank you.
