R-drive backup set does not work

Post by satman » Thu Nov 10, 2016 6:50 am

I need to create an incremental copy of two sets and just keep the last 5 images. I am testing the trial version and when configuring the sets and the maximum of images the program does not work correctly. It creates a complete image and infinite incremental images ...

Thx

Can you
1. Publish here the schedule for the set (when and how you want to keep the files).
2. Publish here the tasks you specified for this backup set. You may create a script for each to shorten their description.

You're creating incremental images. All of them are required to restore data, R-Drive cannot delete any of them.
You have to create 2 disk imaging tasks:
1. One full image at the beginning and after 5 incremental images.
2. 5 incremental images between two full images.

Here R-Drive Image help:
Create an Image, Imaging Mode Options
Backup Sets.
