• Is Windows 7 performing a differential backup?

    In Windows 7, I have a backup scheduled at the end of each week (Sunday - Sunday). But I noticed that only one of my drives is backing up to my external HDD. It's a 1 TB drive so I'm thinking that it might be doing a fresh take each time. Do you think it's copying the entire thing again?
