    Using Windows Professional with latest updates

    I am backing up to an external hard drive, using "differential backup". Is there a way to only keep the last full backup and only the latest "differential" backup without filling up the drive?

    Thanks,

    If your external can hold 3 or 4 FULL backups, reconsider doing differentials. It's just another factor to throw a spanner in the works IF you have to do a Restore. And I have read here where people say their differential is corrupt, rendering the rest of the backup set unusable.

    You could have one Full for Mon, Wed, Fri and one for Tue, Thu & Sat. Then you could have a weekly Full set to run on Sun. That would give you 3 images however, not 2.
