If I run HP Sure store and create a backup, then delete a file, run HP Sure store again, then go look at the backup, the file I deleted shows up in the backup. So then, if I have to restore from the back, it looks like the files I delete will get put back. I would not want that. I haven't found any setting to control this behavior. Am I mssing something?

I have Maxtor OneTouch that I use for backing up files. It backs up any file that has changed or is new in the folders I specify. Should I delete a file from the original folder and then run the backup, the file I deleted from the original folder will still be in the backup, because OneTouch only backs up what it sees has changed or is new, it does not update the backup folder to remove the file that is no longer in the original folder, you have to do that yourself. I assume that HP Sure works essentially the same way.

Repa,

That is the way it appears.
If I had to restore a directory from the backup, I would not like it restoring a bunch of junk I had deleted. I guess there is no good free backup software there will delete files from the backup that have been deleted?

Thanks,
Fay

Nothing that I know of. I could do some research to find something, but you are as good at that as I am. Maxtor has Safety Drill, which allows me to save an image of my entire internal hard drive in case of a system failure so I will be able to restore the entire hard drive. It prompts me to make a new version every 15 days and saves those I specify so I can chose from latest version, or the one I want.

Repa,

I don't expect you to spend time researching, just thought you might happen to know of something. I guess for now I'll just use what I have. Might do some research later.

And I guess once in a while I can delete my backup and let it create a full backup - that would cut down some on the amount of deleted junk in the backup.

Thanks,
Fay

sounds like a good idea - there is also a history on your backup. Not sure if you'll have to delete that too to get what you want.

Repa,

Ok, I'll have to remember to check on that.

Thanks,
Fay
