    I don't have exactly the same experience... however, I do have a caution to share: Microsoft OneDrive has a similar feature. Last I checked, it's not exactly compatible with ANY backup software, in the following sense: Backups work fine However, when you go to restore, it restores the EMPTY local folder(s) Which causes the cloud copies to get cleared out Which means you lose all of your cloud files Unfortunately, I can't place the details on this with a quick google search ...

    It is 100% true, but it would have been more clear if the backup set name was within single or double quotes, such as: from Backup Set "Drives C D and V"

    Tags. If you set your scripts to use tags to determine what to back up, you only have to set a new/replaced client's tags once and it will be picked up by all appropriate scripts. And as David said, you shouldn't get a full backup unless that's part of the script's definition -- "Match only files in same location/path" may be the culprit here.

    You're right about Server Editions, Nigel Smith, but the OP says he licensed the Desktop Edition. As for the "soak the (presumed) rich installation" policy, which was instituted by Dantz before it was acquired by EMC, IMHO the recent failure of that "value pricing" policy in general is what led to the StorCentric acquisition. It appears business customers no longer needed to license Server Editions, because they were now using Linux machines as their servers. Retrospect Inc. put a yellow-colored note into the Windows 15.1 Release Notes saying "Linux Client: In a future update, Linux clients running on server-level Linux distributions will be treated as server clients". However, as I cautiously mentioned elsewhere on these Forums, the opinion of experts I solicited on the Ars Technica Linux forum was that it would be impracticable to distinguish server-level Linux distributions—which shot down extending the "soak the (presumed) rich installation" policy. I have never questioned Windows administrators' need for the Dissimilar Hardware Restore Add-On, just its different "value pricing" levels in the Online Store.
