Hello elhooligan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could use the shortcut in the tutorial below to help making "new full backups" each time instead of "incremental backups".

Backup - Make a "Create New Backup" Shortcut

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You're welcome.

Yes, you sure can. It'll create a new full backup, as setup in "Backup and Restore", in a separate "Backup Set MM-DD-YYYY" folder in the computer name folder each time you run it. Your only limitation of how many you can create will depend on how much free space the HDD (backup location) you are saving to has on it.

You could also setup Task Scheduler to run the shortcut on a schedule as you like for this as well.
