Windows 7: Merging files

Merging files

When backing up files on my computer, is there a way to merge files, like a revised file into an older backed up one? I tend to get too many backed up files that I'm not sure if I want to delete or not.

Hi Dick,

Yes there is. Use SyncToy to do your backups:

Thanks for the info. i have downloaded Synctoy and backed up several files. i will see how it works out when I merge some files in a few days. Is this program feasible for whole system backups?

No, use an imaging program like Macrium Reflect Free or Acronis True Image (not free).
Backup to a 2nd or 3rd internal hard drive or an external USB attached hard drive.
