Re: Managing Back Up Files in Vista
Thank you for the feedback but had a question on restoring.
When I was an XP user I used Ghost by Symantec and then I'd do the FIFO
method to manage disk space. Last time I checked Norton didn't have an
upgrade to Vista.
Now under Vista I assumed there was a basline backup and all subsequent
backup were recording only the things that changed since the last update.
Now if I start to delete subsequent back up files in a FIFO method won't I
lose the ability to recover data saved during a specific time?
Again, thank you for your support and direction on this.
