Questions on Win 7 BACKUP


J

John

About a month ago, I had questions about incremental backups, and why it was
taking many hours to do an "incremental" backup. It appears that Windows
will respect the "sleep" command and stop the backup. Of course, when you
wake up the sleeping giant you are surprised about the length of time of the
backup. Stupid me.
My new question. I know that my current "backup" includes a great deal of
photos which normally resided on my desktop. (reason unknown). I have safely
copied them to DVD's, and deleted them from my PC. How do I insure that the
copies of these photos that reside on my external HD are also eliminated
from the "Backup". Clearly, this would restore a great deal of space on the
external HD. One method to guarantee the cleanup would be to delete the
existing "backup" and do a complete new "backup". Am I on the right track,
or will an incremental backup complete the cleanup??

You're on the right track.

No, go back to where you were on the right track. :)
