    Hello everyone.

    I am trying to create incremental backups of my C: partition (FAT32) from outside windows. So I created a boot CD with TI 9 and booted from it.
    First I tryed to create the first backup of the C: partition using "Back up files and folders" method. I selected the entire C: partition in the treeview, set the output to D:\Backup1.tib, compression to maximum and started the backup. After backing up a few files TI stopped on a file and would not continue. The file was not corrupt and there was plenty of space on D:. This seems to happen every time I try to do a file backup, no matter the files it is backing up. TI just stops, and if I press Cancel button it says that it's trying to abort the task but it doesn't do anything. Is there a known problem with this?
    After that I tryed to create a backup using "Back up entire drive or partition" method. I succesfuly created the full backup of the partition to D:\BK1.tib (627 MB).
    Just to test the incremental backup feature, I booted into linux live and added 30 MB of files to C: without defragmanting or dooing anything else to it.Then booted again into TI 9 and tryed to create an incremental backup of the partition. I choose the destination D:\BK1.tib and then selected "Create incremental backup". The backup completed succesfuly and D:\BK2.tib was created. But BK2.tib is 660 MB, and I added only 30 MB of files. Why is this? If I select the backup in TI 9 it says: "This is volume 2 of multivolume BK.tib", so it appears that it is an incremental backup.
    Is the first backup included in the incremental backup? I mean if I restore BK2.tib will I not need BK1.tib.
