I have a desktop using Windows 7. For years, I have successfully been using FBackup4, which recently updated to FBackup5. I cannot figure out how to choose incremental rather than mirror backups and my external backup drives have filled up.
Rather than continue to use FB5, if reasonable, I'd like to use the backup capabilities of Windows, since I have heard they are much improved. First of all, are they? Or, should I find an external backup package?
Since I have not used Windows backup system, I would like some advice on how to set it up, to do incremental backups only. This is my current configuration:
I have 2 internal drives: C, which is 1.5 TB and primarily used for programs and systems files; and F, which is 750 GB primarily used for data. C has approximately 200GB used space and 1.15 TB free space. F has 426 GB used space and 271 GB free space.
My primary external backup drive is "L" which is 1 TB. My second external backup drive is "I" which is 750 GB. My 3rd (and slowest/hardly used) drive is M, which is 1 TB. I also have 1 off-site backup drive which is 750 GB that duplicates some of my most critical files.
If Windows backup is a good idea, how do you recommend my setting it up to do automatic backups which are not zip files?
