Implimenting incremental or differential File backups?
If you are creating incremental or differential file backups, be sure to alternate-click the box for the selections to ensure that you carry the logic choices.
A standard mouse-click will simply include or exclude the file\folder\volume where as alternate mouse-clicks will bring up the option in the first picture below:
from the next window, choose the specific logic you want
finally, ensure that your logic is correct. hit the F2 button and view the logic. Ensure that all lines of logic have the /DA at the end to be sure that you carried the logic through the selections properly.
repeat this logic for any other edits to your incremental\differential backup sets.
Standard mouse-clicks on the selection boxes in the backup set will include or exclude that selection, but will not carry any special logic. As a result, it is important to use the alt-click option when dealing with incremental or differential backup sets.
