|Need help understanding how to schedule incremental backups. My understanding is to restore incremental backups, you need the full backup and all incremental backups since the full backup.|
When I schedule the incremental backup using Windows Backup, it asks if you want to append or replace backup. I don't think I want to replace, since I would need all incremental backups to restore. And I tried to append, and that just adds to the previous incremental, giving you one file. Is there a rename option for incremental backups that I am overlooking. Do I indeed have to manually set up each individual incremental file when I use the scheduler?
I currently use differential backups, with no problems, but I really want to fully understand this incremental thing, because I think I could efficiently backup more often.
