Windows 7: Windows 7 Backup Time Machine

Windows 7 Backup Time Machine

Hello to all.
I noticed that the Windows 7 Backup is an incremental backup and does not delete. I would have that if i restoring a backup to a certain date let me see the folders exactly as they were on that date, but I do also see files and folders that I previously deleted.
Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks

It's a backup - meant to recover files and folders. It wouldn't be a very good backup if deleted items were not preserved.

What I think you're looking for is something like: To create a new, full backup in Back up your files - Microsoft Windows Help

the problem is that if I lose all the data and do a restore of the backup of yesterday, I retrieves data that I deleted 1 year ago. So I have to check all the folders and delete the files again.

COMODO Time Machine
I ran across this free program about a month ago, and have been using it extensively. It has saved me numerous times, since I'm always testing new software, some of which I either don't end up wanting or just doesn't work. So using Time Machine steps in and does a restore. I've often had problems...
