Hi, I'm looking for some advice on how to set up backups for my situation... Win XP SP2 - Acronis TI 9 Build 2337 Internal Disk 1 (400 Gb) - Partitioned: C (Operating System) and D (Data) Internal Disk 2 (400 Gb) - Backup disk I'm thinking that I would like to: A) Create weekly images of my C drive (maybe with a daily incremental if possible) B) Create a weekly full backup of some of my data (not all needs backing up), with a daily incremental backup Q1) Is the above backup schedule suitable? (incremental vs. differential and time between full backups) Q2) Should I be running secure zone - I'm aware of the pros and cons and I'm thinking I should be since both disks are internal and always connected Q3) How do I schedule this? Does this represent 4 jobs (i.e. the 2 full backups and then the 2 incremental backup jobs) Q4) When I run the second full backup, will subsequent incremental backups be asigned to it and not to the original full backup run a week earlier? Q5) Is the verify data switch a reliable test? Q6) In case of failure, would I be able to restore, just the operating system image onto the C partition and leave the D partition untouched? Q7) Once set-up can I just set it and forget it until I need it, or are there maintenance procedures or checks I should be aware of? Thanks for your time and help. Dan.
