Ok, someone please help, because I don't understand this at all...   Dodgy

I've been experimenting with using Windows 7's Backup and Restore to protect my old files. Did a first full backup in the fall, then did a second one today. Now, the Help and Support file for backup states "Backup keeps track of the files that have been added or modified since your last backup and then updates the existing backup, which saves disk space," which makes sense, right? But the fall backup is 120 GB, and today's backup (which took hours) is 135 GB. The HDD in question, which has nothing else on it, lists 255 GB filled.


Obviously, then, today's backup didn't merely update the new and modified files, as my Documents folder (the only one I've set these backups to target) is currently 135 GB, and has certainly not grown by more than 20 GB in the past few months, nor have I gone on large-file modifying sprees. Nor could only adding and modifying new files have taken so very long. No, Backup by all appearances seems to have created a second, separate backup of every damn thing. I've searched through the (very scanty) Settings screens, and can't find any kind of option to add only new and modified files to the next backup, so I don't know what the above Help and Support quote could possibly mean. If Backup isn't going to smartly and selectively only backup new and modified files, why should I bother with it at all, instead of manually copying my Documents folder?! What's going on?!

So... no one uses Windows Backup? Do you use another program, or drag&drop? Smile
