Vist Backup
Hello
I'm running Vista Home Premium with all updates including SP1. I backup my
files weekly to an external hard drive using the Windows backup utility that
is a part of Vista. As I understand it, the backup is supposed to back up
all new or changed files and does not back up program files.

My external hard drive now has more used space than my hard drive. I must
have some setting wrong or something weird is going on. It seems that tha
used space on the external drive where the backups are stored should be less
than the used space on the hard drive since the hard drive has all files
plus the OS plus the program files.

Suggestions greatfully appreciated.


Harmon

Re: Vist Backup

I use Macrium Reflect Free to do backups from Vista 64. It backs up the
whole hard drive to a image file. It may be a better alternative for you
and its free.

RE: Vist Backup
Hi Harmon,

We've recently started a new forum on Backup and Restore related topics. I'd
encourage you to post your questions or comments there as it is more
actively monitored by our experts.
