    Hi all,

    has anyone got an easy step-by-step for n Acronis newbie ?

    1) Do I create a full backup that is scheduled once a week
    2) Do I then create a second scheduled job that runs daily for incrementals ?

    Is there anything I need to know in particular ?

    cheers,

    Adam

    Hi Adam
    You are correct in what you want to do. Create a full backup Weekly on one day in the week and the incrementals Weekly on the other days of the week.
    Once a week the full backup will be overwritten by the new one and the incrementals will be overwritten daily so you will never have more than 7 image files.

    How do you schedule the FULL to run on Sunday and the incrementals to run daily Mon - Sat ? I can only get it to schedule weekdays, and not specifically pick the days.

    Doing it this way, I won't get an incremental on Sat.
    Thanks.

    For full back up on Sundays.
    1. Schedule Task - Choose the drive/s to backup.
    2. Choose the image file's name and location.
    3. Choose Create Full Backup Image.
    4. Password as required.
    5. Size as required.
    6. Compression as required.
    7. Comments as required.
    8. Choose 'Perform this task Weekly'.
    9. Select the start time and Sunday only for this task.

    For the Incrementals on the other days just alter these stages.
    3. Select 'Append changes...' etc.
    9. Select the start time and days Monday to Saturday.

    Each day the images will be overwritten so you will only have 7 image files.

    HTH
