    Hi,
    I wonder if that's possible make a psl script, making different backups of 4 different partitions, then make a complex archive for whole set. It seems that using

    // 1st partition
    img = "Y:/Backup/diff_0_$(YEAR)_$(MONTH)_$(DAY)_$(HOUR)_$(MINUTE).pbf"
    base = "Y:/Backup/img_0.pbf"
    select disk "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
    select partition offset 12345678
    options
    notempfiles
    noarcfiles
    autonames hotbackup lockimpossible
    tempdrive C
    usevss
    index = "Y:/Backup/backup_$(YEAR)_$(MONTH)_$(DAY)_$(HOUR)_$(MINUTE).pfi"
    store

    // 2nd partition
    img = "Y:/Backup/diff_1_$(YEAR)_$(MONTH)_$(DAY)_$(HOUR)_$(MINUTE).pbf"
    base = "Y:/Backup/img_1.pbf"
    select disk "YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY"
    select partition offset 987654321
    options
    notempfiles
    noarcfiles
    autonames hotbackup lockimpossible
    tempdrive C
    usevss
    index = "Y:/Backup/backup_$(YEAR)_$(MONTH)_$(DAY)_$(HOUR)_$(MINUTE).pfi"
    store

    and so on, still writes archive diff_0_........pbf even for 2nd partition and on.
    Is differential backup for more archives supported within one script? If not, is there a workaround?

    Yet an additional question:
    script option

    exclude = "/hiberfil.sys"

    doesn't seem to exclude hibernation file from backup. Any advice how to get it out off archive?

    exclude = "/swapfile.sys"

    excludes paging file successfully, so I suppose the syntax is fine.
