Acronis True Image Home 10.0 (build 4942) Windows XP Pro SP-2 I have the following setup: Backup location quotas: - 50.65 GB max size - 15 max backups - 90 days max retention Image backup using the backup location with: - Create differential backups -- Create new full backup after 6 differential backups After 6 differential backups, a new full backup should get created. Nope, the differentials just keep happening. I end up with the following backup files in the backup location: 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D2.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D3.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D4.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D5.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D6.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D7.TIB (why wasn't the next backup a full backup?) 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D8.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D9.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D10.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D11.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D12.TIB 2007_08_03_20_34_28_476D13.TIB I'm now up to 12 differential backups after the full backup. That's twice what the option should allow. Also, the backup files in the backup location folder now comprise 57.4 GB. That is about 7GB over the quota for max size. As a result, the partition containing the backup location now only has 1GB of free space, not enough for the backup. The scheduler sucks that is included in TI Home, especially when compared to the Task Scheduler already included in Windows which, for example, lets me pend the event until the computer goes idle for awhile. I am using an event in Task Scheduler to run the backups by using the command: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImage\TrueImageService.exe" /script:<tis_file> Are the backup location quotas not honored if Acronis' scheduler is not used? I had originally disabled the Acronis scheduler service but found that image restores won't run without it. So the Acronis scheduler service is enabled and running at the time these backups are executed (by using Task Scheduler).
