Multiple backup files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Mr Softy

    I have 200GB HD and a external 500GB HD which I use only for backyp with Onecare.
    I have over time made a mistake of hitting complete backup so now on my backuo drive I have 3 backup files.

    I know I have multiple backups as the following files total 300M+ and my PC hard drive is only 200GB.


    2008
    2008-a
    2008-b

    I am afraid to delete the wrong one. How do I know which file to keep?

    I am afraid to delete them all and do a complete backup in case the PC dies during backup.

    Help!!

  • Hello RKAR, 2008-b should be the most recent backup. It still might be the best strategy to delete all of your backups and start fresh. The likelyhood of your computer failing while creating a new backup is remote.
