    Greetings,

    I had two miscellaneous questions on incremental images.

    I make a complete image of my system partition on Monday and incremental images on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. If I delete the Friday image, can I restore from the Thursday image or are all of the images a set that will only work together as a set?

    If I deleted the Wednesday image rather than the Friday image, would I be able to restore the Thursday image? I assume not.

    I read the manual which states:

    If you are to restore a disk (partition) from an incremental image, you must have the current image as well as at least one, or preferably all, previous incremental images and the initial complete image. The exact number of images depends on how disk contents changed between image creation procedures.

    This is confusing to me.

    BTW, my question is more of an academic one in that I am trying to understand how the incremental images work.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hello Modred --

    Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for your interest in Acronis

    If you delete an image made on Friday, you will be able to restore from the image made on Thursday, while if you delete an image made on Wednesday, you won't be able to restore from the image made on Friday.

    Thank you.
