Failing Disk Deletes Backup Data
I manage a large array of disks and rely on Robocopy via batch files to backup only changed data. This has served me well for a year or so now. However, last week I had a drive go flakey. For some reason all of the folders on the drive beginning with letters K through Z got trashed. Since no one realized this the backup script ran on schedule and promptly deleted all folders on my backup drive beginning with letters K through Z.
I've used a couple of backup programs in the past and I'm fairly sure this issue is not adressed. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi LarryR and welcome to Seven Forums.
If you use FreeFileSync you have the ability to create versions instead of deleting. FreeFileSync | Free Security & Utilities software downloads at SourceForge.net
