Environement: single Windows 2008 R2 server (DC, DNS, DHCP)


I am using Windows 2008 backup to backup automatically the whole server on a 1Tb USB drive
Everything is set up as default options
Data to save is about 200Mb

Sometimes, and without any reason, all incremental backups are erased, and backups stored on the usb drive starts again from 1, 2, 3, ect...
I am losing all the history backup
And I do not know why

Thank you for your help

Any scheduled task to delete the old backups? if so, remove it and see it stored as long as you delete manually?

No scheduled task. Just Windows Backup scheduled for daily backups
