Having a bit of a play with Active@, it seems very good but I'm not finding the interface that intuitive.

If I, for example, want to set someone up with a daily incremental backup, what would be the correct setup? Do I first have to create a full image then choose that in the scheduled task setup wizard?

Interested to hear from anyone who uses it, and how you have it setup.

Thanks!

yep once you have a full image the incrementals work off that image, trouble is as with any backup they don't overwrite so you end up after a while with a heap of incremental backups, or at least I did so now I just make a new image every couple of months and do a weekly data backup with Syncback.

Oh expect me back up there in 2 years time looking for a job, ticking the days off, Liam will be a qualified sparkie by then

I use Macrium Reflect but the scheduling is probably the same. I schedule the full backup every week and an incremental one every day. It is set to keep four copies.

This seems to sort itself out OK!

As regards SyncVBack, is the free version good enough for simple (but reliable) day-to-day tasks?
