I had to do a restore to my main drive - drive C, And since then I am showing the latest back ups but also the back ups 1 week prior to the restore.June 24th- latest and also June 17th.  So when I went to do my first back ups after the restore I chose the latest ones and they have backed up fine but I still see back ups from the week previously before the restore date June 17th.. I have done 2 back ups since and the June 17th backs are still showing. Can I delete them from my list?

Whenever you do a restore / recovery of your OS drive, then you will also restore back the state of files held in the C:\ProgramData\Acronis folders, which includes the status of Acronis tasks etc.

I would recommend doing a validation for your backup tasks and see what messages this gives regarding your older backup versions.

Thanks for helping. That worked. I was able to delete them and just have my up to date ones. I didn't see the validate part.Or actually knew what it did,

Thanks for explaining.
