TI-2014 Full image now 150% larger that total actual space!!
For the last 3 years I always do Full Image Backups to a secondary 2TB Drive on a weekly basis using the Rescue Disk and always choose to verify the image. Up to September 5, 2019 back ups required ~205GB which corresponded to the actual data in use in my C: Drive and took about 35 minutes for the whole process. However, the backups of September 12 and 19 have now taken in excess of 3 HOURS and each one takes up over 350GB of space. I've verified the actual data in use of my C: Drive using several tools and all confirm the ~205GB previously mentioned. As a matter of fact even the Rescue Disk informs that there's 205GB of data that are to be backed up. Hence, I can not understand this 150% increase in the images. I also run the MS Disk Cleanup tool and as I usually do prior to the Full Image Backup just to make sure there's no unnecessary files. Furthermore, I "open" and go into each image file with no discernible errors nor problems accessing data within. BTW, I've been using the same Rescue Disk mounted on a USB Stick solely used for this purpose for the last 3 years Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!
