Simple Rotation Scheme - help with paramters

Post by mikeduncan177 » Mon May 02, 2022 11:56 am

For my Home system backup (HP Spectre laptop, running Windows 11), I have chosen to use the Simple Rotation scheme,as outlined in the image below.

I am concerned that the Incremental Images will continue to accumulate, judging from the "On each 1 image Tier" entries.

What I am looking to do is keep only 3 backup Image sets, with an Image set consisting of a Full backup and 6 Incrementals.
Do I have it set up correctly to achieve this? Also, it would be most helpful if you can point me to any documentation on using your Rotation Schemes.

When a full image is deleted by the parameters, R-Drive Image automatically deletes all incremental and differential images related to that full image.
