Hey guys,

Windows 7 Backup lagged the crap out of my computer and I just didn't feel overly trusting of it. Also it takes up heaps of space on my backup drive.


FBackup seemed like a powerful and lightweight solution. I set a full backup to happen every night at 5am, in hopes that after the first full backup, all nightly backups would only take a few minutes to update any files that were changed.


But it's currently 11am and it's only 75% through backing up - this is almost a week into the schedule. Every night has been the same.


Please let me know if there is anything you need to help troubleshoot this, or if there's a quick answer to it all :) Thanks!

Hi,


Do you use the Full or the Mirror backup type? Please note the Full type will back up all files every time, while the Mirror backup type will copy only new and modified files.

I see! I thought it was the other way around.

Bonjour,

Je voudrai simplement savoir comment pratiquer pour "vérifier et lire" sur mon disque dur externe les dossiers et fichiers sauvegardés, sans restaurer pour autant .

Merci pour la réponse. Mille excuses mais je suis débutant !.

Hi Leroy,


We don't offer French support, but I translated your question using Google Translate.


The test is automatically performed after each backup. You cannot perform a manual test using FBackup. That feature is available only in our commercial edition: Backup4all.
