Not doing incremental image
Jul 17th, 2008 at 11:59am
 
I am using Ghost 12 on Vista.

I notice that my incremental drive backups work fine, unless I restore back to my initial recovery point.  Once I do that, when I try to run an incremental backup of the drive, it does a complete backup.  

To clarify, I ran a base image of my C: drive on July 1.  I later restored back to July 1.  Then I wanted to create an incremental image to add onto the July 1 image, but it created a new base image instead.

I am wondering if this is because the restoration deletes the data in the Ghost history folder on C:, so Ghost does not know it has already created an initial base image.

Can anyone confirm or deny this?

If it is correct, is there a way around this?

Thanks

vince,

That's how Ghost works with WinXP. I haven't tried it with Vista.

If you restore an image, the next created image will be a full baseline backup.

If you do a hard shutdown, the next created image will be a full baseline backup.

See this thread re VSNAP.IDX

OK thanks.

Do you suppose that if I copied that file before the restore and put it back in after the restore, that I would be able to do an incremental image?

Thanks

OK thanks.

If I get a chance to try it I'll report back here.
