All files backup not backing up all files

Recommended Posts

I've set the backup to backup from Source: Local Disk (C:) to an external hard drive destination. Selecting: All files

 

if this is set to backup all files why is it not backing up all files? C: is currently using almost 100GB. But the backup is only backing up like 30GB

 

any ideas? thanks

The first backup should copy all files, while subsequent (incremental) backups only copy new/changed files.

 

Also, by default, Retrospect "matches" files on the hard drive, so if there are any exact duplicates the file will only be backed up once. An example would be having two folders containing the same mpeg files. Retrospect would only backup the files from one location, however, the snapshot would note the existence of the files in two locations.

 

Retrospect will also exclude any Retrospect rdb files from a backup.
