File Backups to External USB Drive
In addition to the full backup I started after getting my new computer's system set up the way I wanted it, with all of my file libraries arranged as well (for which I'm using the differential scheme), I want to keep a full backup of each library.
I already have a backup of those files (made just over a month ago, now), that I had started before moving to the new computer, and that I updated shortly after getting things setup on the new computer...using the painstaking method of disk-to-disk copying and comparing folder properties, etc.
Now I would like to KEEP those files updated at least once a month, on that same drive.
When I look through the instructions for the CLOUD backups, it tells me that after the initial backup, only changes are made in following file backups. It does NOT tell me that, when it talks about file backups made to external hard drives.
Can someone please tell me how this works?
Also, will I be able to simply update the existing files through Acronis, or will I need to start a whole new library system, and then update from there? I'm OK with that...I just need to know.
For instance, in the copy on my F drive there's a folder for My Documents. If I set a backup to be made of all the selected folders and files, will it simply copy in EVERYTHING, or will it only copy in files that have been changed since I made the original backup on my own?
