    My incremental backup is as big as my full backup! Is this normal? If so...why? :doubt:

    Have you defragged since the initial image?

    Yes, I use MST Defrag, so it's constantly defragged.

    In that case, all sectors get continuously rewritten. Incremental backup won't work.

    Best thing to do is schedule a full defrag on a "backup free day", like sunday, and then schedule a full backup afterwards.

    The second incremental was much smaller. I think all is OK.
