    Hi,

    How do I do a weekly full image of c-drive, incrementals the rest of the week, then repeat that and keep 2 weeks worth of those backups before it overwrites?

    I'm in TI Server 9.

    Can I do this?

    Thanks!

    You could try a variation on this one which has daily backups going back for a month :

    Is there no built-in way to do this in TI Server? Symantec's Live Recovery has a base backup and incremental system where you can specify the number of base backups you keep along with associated incrementals (7, 14, whatever cycle you want) that go with it. If you for instance tell it you want to keep 2 sets at 7 days, it will delete the oldest set in order to always keep 2 sets.

    Does TI have anything similar? It's a simple clean way to say keep 2 weeks of backups in a set it and forget it way.

    Thanks,

    This functionality was improved in V10, you have to knife and fork it yourself in v9.

    OK. I'm running TI Server though - there is no version 10.

    Acronis or anyone know if there is any help for me here?

    Thanks!
