I would like to perform "Incremental Backups" rather than backing up all my files every time I run Backup. Just backup the files I changed and new files and folders that I added.
I have heard of Acronis, but have no experience using it. I am not planning on buying new software in order to achieve my objectives.
Is there a way of doing this type of incremental backup in Windows 7 64-bit?
Here are my drives stats:
C: 750 GB (overkill, but I had this) Contains the OS (Win 7 64-bit) and some other programs.
R: Two 1 TB each - All my data files, photos, music, videos, etc, are this drive which is RAID1 (mirroring).
Z: 1.5 TB single external drive - Dedicated Backup drive - data backup as well as disk image of C:
What is it specifically Windows backup does not do that other backup softeare programs might? With windows 7 backup, the backup files are available for restoration by booting to the installation DVD as part of the repair structure of the OS. You mean like this free backup software:
I use norton ghost 12, though it costs a lot, its easier and faster than any other.
since acronis is also not free.
for freeware, you can give a shot at
EASEUS Todo Backup,Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Edition but youll have to see it for yourself, as ive never used them, i just know about them.
