I have searched Knowledge Base, Forums, Acronis Help and I am STILL not sure what Consolidation will look like physically. I can wait for a couple of weeks and view the results of my consolidation or is there a non-technical description of what Consolidation will leave me as far as data goes. Also is "consolidation" very accurate, for example how does it handle renaming of a file I presume both files will remain around. My example I have a Folder called DAILY which has 7 increments followed by a "consolidation". On day 9 (the one extra needed to trigger) will I be left with 1 consolidated file ready to start the incrementation process again at increment #1. Is there a way to keep multiple versions of the consolidated file or do I have to have a folder for WEEKLY and MONTHLY. That is, for a file called "user docs" in the DAILY folder will I only have at the most 7 files if I set my consolidation at 7 increments. My veiw is that with consolidation set at 7, I will have 8 increments, then the next day I will have just 1 consolidated file with no increments. The user manual seems to indicated that I will always have 7 increments, it talks about slices and that is good for those in the know, but not for me.
