My question is I want to create a scheduled full system back up to run 1x a week. But also, i want to run a incremental back up daily.

Problem:

I want the daily incremental backup to basically be a full system back up as well, completely separate from the one i have running once a week.

Now i know i will eventually run out of space on the server or station housing the backup files, Is there any way of having the system keep all 7 of the daily backups , but delete off the oldest back up whenever the newest back up is created?

Is this possible???

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes, incremental backup of files are always possible. However, since this is already a complicated and sensitive part of your computer needs, it is still better to use a backup software to properly guide you and safely backup your important files.

    I guess you will need to do the math on how big is ur full image and ur incremental backup. then if you have tape drive just point it to the tape drive to store your backup

    Is is possible to set this up in the "Task Scheduler" so that that system automatically deletes on its own , the oldest back-up, while replacing it with a fresh full backup?
