    I have succesfully carried out a number of incremental backups and entered comments on each of these incremental backups.
    However I now find that when I click and select one of the earlier increments the comments made at that time have been overwritten by the latest comments and there does not seem to be any method of retaining the comments made for each individual incremental backup.

    The result of this is that one only has date at which the backup was made without knowing why the backup was created?

    Is this normal or am I doing something wrong

    Am I going to have to keep a seperate record of what each increment contains?

    Thanks for any advice

    Each increment contains only the in use sectors that have changed since the last full backup or increment. All increments are considered part of the intial full backup. I don't use increments so I can't comment on your issue with comments changing.

    Thank you Marat for that explanation, I have tried it and it works.

    However it has brought up another problem for me personally
    When I checked the comments box on the right I noticed that I had created a full image of my C drive then a differential backup but the next three in error were incremental backups?

    Question
    Could I make a successful recovery from these mixed images as they are
    or should I delete the incremental images and replace with one differential one?
    Or would it be best to make a brand new image of my C drive currently as everything seems to be OK at the moment?

    I would appreciate your input and how best to do what ever you suggest
