backup size keeps changing without running

Hi Barry. I have a new external HD and am trying to backup the OS (Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit). I chose that option (backup boot partition) when creating the job then deleted a few items like temp folders and folders that pertain to apps that I no longer use (so they shouldn't even be there, but they are). ...

I just did this process on a third drive and it did show an increase in free space, so I don't know what's going on with the drives that didn't show it.
Thanks for your help.

You mean on the bottom left? I did click them, and the drive's activity light was flashing as if data were moving. Seems there was also a line or something on the window that said it was removing files. Everything seemed right except for no change in the size of free space in Windows explorer. I als...

Well it seemed to work okay and the files seem to no longer be available for restoring, but the amount of free space on the drive hasn't changed in Windows explorer. The files I removed added up to about 5GB (before AISB compression) so I would think the amount of space recovered would be noticeable...

automatic delete of backed-up files no longer on backup list

Hi Barry.
If I'm running generation-based backups, and I delete a file from my pc or remove it from the "files and folders" list, will that file be removed from the existing backups on the backup medium on the next run?
Thanks

Re: All Sessions

All sessions shows all files that have ever been backed up. Your second restore from the last backup session deleted the icons that did not exist on the PC when the latest backup was made (AISBackup should have asked to confirm the deletions). I wasn't clear. My second restore from the last backup ...

restoring desktop

Hi Barry. I have 3 monitors with some of the desktop icons located on each monitor. I had to update the video driver today which resulted in all the icons being on one monitor. It occurred to me that I had done a backup of the C: drive only yesterday so I decided to do a restore of only the desktop ...

Re: Missing shorcuts

Hi John Are they in \users\public\desktop? Cheers Barry I see. Yes, they are. So they will be backed up because that folder is selected. I was looking in \users\John\desktop. Can you tell me why they aren't there? I am the one who installed them, after all. (There aren't any other users.) Thanks

desktop shortcuts not included in backup

Hi Barry. When I backup my C: drive, in the "modify files and folders list," most of the desktop shortcuts for programs I've installed are missing. In other words, they're not in the list for me to include or exclude; they're just not there at all. Everything else on the desktop seems to be in the l...

Changed drive letters; do I have to recreate backup jobs?

In a major revamping of my pc, I changed all the drive letters. For example, the Photography partition is now drive H: instead of L:. When I next went to back up the photography partition, AISB was still trying to backup L when all the photo files were in H. I looked in job settings for a way to cha...

Re: Backup job location

The backup job information is stored in c:\program data\aquarius is consultancy\AISBackup, The Program Data folder is normally hidden. The new OS is probably using the 'C' drive so using the backup again will update the previous windows 7 backup. That is okay but may not be what you desire. An alte...

copying existing AISB to new OS

Hi Barry. I've been using AISB on Windows 7 and have now installed Win8 in a dual-boot configuration on a second hard drive. I want to be able to keep all my backup jobs when I install AISB in win8 on the second hd. (Basically, I want to just pick up all of AISB as a unit and copy it to the new OS o...

Re: Excluding cache folders

Okay, I'll give this a try and see how it does. Alternatively navigate to the cache folders, right click the folder and choose Exclude Files and Sub Folders . This is the way I've done it in the past, and boy, that's a never-ending task! That's why I decided I had to find a way to automate things. :...
