I am so confused. I did a full image backup when I first installed Acronis. I then scheduled incremental backups for every Monday. I now have 9 incremental backups. So If I continue this I will have like 52+ backups which eventually will use up on the hard drive. I backup to a second hard drive. Sorry I'm really new at this. Is it really necessary to do incremenatal backups. If I understand correctly you can't delete the incremental backups because all of them are necessary if you ever have to restore? My question is couldn't I just do a full image each time I want to do a backup and delete the precious one and thus saving disk space. Or do you have any other suggestions. Thank you.
