Backup Size

Thread solved

My backup size on the last ten daily incremental backups was only 12.00 KB. Before that they were always 810.33 GB. This happened before and I started a new backup and it backed up the right size, but now it is back to showing a 12.00KB size. Look at the screenshots and you can see the two files on the destination drive and the email from Acronis. I will also include the settings files. Any help would be appreciated.

Michael, your screen image #1 shows you have either ATI 2020 or 2021 which uses the new .tibx backup files, and therefore seeing the 12KB (metadata) file is correct and expected and your backup -0002 file is a consolidated file containing both the full and any associated incremental files for the backup task.

See the following KB documents published by Acronis with regards to .tibx files.
