    Possible Virus in BackUp

    The Alureon.H virus infected my hard drive and I am concerned my backup also contains the virus. What do I do? Can I clean the backup? Can I delete the entire backup from the external drive and would that effectively eliminate the virus? Thank you. ridgerunner
  2. Thank you very much for this advice. It is a great help to me. ridgerunner
  3. Thank you for your reply. I am really new to this and just updated Retrospect 7.5 to 7.6. My operating system is Win XP SP3. I started using Retrospect when I recently purchased an Iomega eGo external hard drive for backup purposes. I have read a good bit of the documentation for incremental and duplicate backups and I guess that is what started me wondering which was the best. I also wondered if using a combination of the two might be better, if that is even a possibility. I appreciate any advice or other users' strategy tips. I fall into the group of users that cannot make a Disaster Recovery CD, because the .iso image is too large. It is a concern to me that I really will not know if the backup I have is good until I need it. ridgerunner
  4. I think I put this post in the wrong forum so I am putting a copy here. I did not see a way to delete it from the other forum. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Hi! I am new to using back up software like Retrospect. I used "Backup" for my entire computer and I wondering if that was the best approach. I would like to be able to see my personal files, instead of having to execute a search by criteria and have files copied to a folder in the root directory. I took a look at "Duplicate "and that seems good for personal files and folders but maybe not for system files and folders. Is it a good practice to use "Backup" for system files and "Duplicate" for personal files? Can you do that on the same backup HD? Thanks in advance for your help, ridgerunner
