Yup, the default is 4, but can be changed.
I uncheck everything because i don't want Macrium to ever auto delete any of my backups.
I would rather get an "out of space" error, so i can manually decide what to keep and what to delete.

Yep good info :)
I'm always reluctant to alter default settings

I don't have any specific plan on deleting the backups, but getting low on space does prompt me to delete some. Anything close to a year old gets deleted. But now I'm putting them on an external drive, so I have 'space galore', LOL. Still, a year old sounds like a good delete point.

A computer I'm working on only has 1GB of DDR RAM. Would increasing the size of the page file help speed it up any? I would put more RAM in except that the computer is really old and not worth it putting money into. This computer is old and is just one for me to mess around with. Thanks for...
