I have an external hard disk F: which I decided to backup to another EHD I:. The F: drive contains 10.2gb of data. I made a full backup on 1st January with the following result on I: -

Seagate1.tib 4,194,300gb 1/1/2007
Seagate2.tib 4,194,300gb 1/1/2007
Seagate3.tib 1,223,242gb 1/1/2007

Having added some files of about 60mb I decided to do an incremental backup, and was careful to choose Incremental, not Full. After waiting 1.5 hours for it to be done I now get all of the above PLUS -

Seagate4.tib 4,194,300gb 21/1/2007
Seagate5.tib 4,194,300gb 21/1/2007
Seagate5.tib 1,166,261gb 21/1/2007

So my 10.2gb HD has now become 19,166,703gb, with a lot of duplicate .tib files. I thought Incremental backups were supposed to be quick and small. Can I delete some of these files and keep, say, the original backup (Seagate1 and 3) and the latest 6? Why does it keep repeating the large file? I don't understand the process it uses.

Truthfully, I never make incremental image backups, I only use the full image backup option.

I will say that Acronis True Image is current at version 10, so you're running a pretty old version. I'd consider an upgrade...
