<p>OK - but does that mean the one backup file (containing both new & modified files)continues to get bigger indefinitely? What is the correct backup & restore strategy for mirror backups, assuming we regularly restore to a second computer, to keep it's data up to date and identical to the m...

<p>Following up on this, what is the restore strategy if I have the 1st mirror backup (full), and then 2 more weeks (14 more days) of mirror (i.e. incremental) backups. Do I need to restore all 15 backups, one at a time?</p> <p>Alternately, if would prefer to start over again every 7 days, how do I ...

Same size backup to same usb drive using Windows Explorer took 14 minutes. Would I get the identical slow backup using Backup4all?

OK. But I only see one backup (the latest) on the destination usb drive. So how do I restore all the files (e.g. to a different computer), if only the latest incremental backup (which may only have 3 files on it)is showing?

<p>Did a mirror backup of over 5000 files. An hour later, ran the same backup job again, and it backed up only 3 files. These were the only 3 files I accessed in the interim. Isn't this in fact a differential backup? Will it continue to backup only the changed files from this point on. That is exact...

<p>Mirror backup & test of 5500 files, 3.2Gb, to usb stick, Windows XP pro, took 5 hours. No encryption. Is this typical? Would it be just as slow using Backup4all? If not, how much faster?</p> <p>10 year old software I was using (Stomp BackUp MyPC)does identical backup job in 25 minutes.</p> <p...
