Windows 7: Multiple Incremental Backups

20 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Multiple Incremental Backups

Is there any way to perform multiple incremental backups for multiple drives with the Windows Backup utility? The reason I ask is because my experience with the Backup utility only allows me to schedule one type of backup. My issue is that I have six hard drives in my tower and the total disk space across them is more than any disk space that most external hard drives have. Having that said, I don't have a way to incrementally backup all of my drives.

Is there any third party software out there that allows me to allow me to perform multiple incremental backups for my system? Can I do this with the Windows Backup utility a different way? The built-in program does a great job but it's limited with what I want to do.

As always, thank you for your help!

Windows backup can be restrictive for your needs. If you are looking at incremental/differential type imaging as well then the paid version of Macrium Reflect is worth a look. Macrium is generally well regarded here. There are others of course.
