How to Schedule an Automatic Incremental Backup
Using the Acronis 11 Backup Program

The Computer Helper
And User Group
of Saddlebag Lake Resort

by

Bob Staib

During the last year, I have had many occasions when people have brought their computers to me because they would not boot, or had some other major system problem. The first question I always ask is "do you have a backup". and I almost never receive a "yes" answer. I always recommend the installation of the Acronis backup program and make a complete backup image of the system so it is easy to recover from almost any computer disaster.

After I install Acronis, I have received several requests to explain how to schedule an Automatic Daily Incremental Backup because it is not as clear in the program menus as people seem to need.

This is the purpose of this document.

So, the following assumes that you have the Acronis True Image 11 Backup program installed on your computer and that you have your machine set up to use a Username and Password. If you do not have your machine set up to use a Username and Password contact me at (rbs@SaddlebagLakeResort.net) and I can show you how. If you have XP you can set it up to automatically log in to your account on reboot. On Vista you MUST login to your account manually on reboot.

For those who do not have Acronis 11 you should ignore this document except that you should know that Acronis 11 is, in my opinion, the best backup program on the market today and is available for download on the web for approximately $49.95. Our son carries it at his computer store (The PC-Nurd) in Lake Wales for about $40.00. (2429 SR 60, near Norby's, 678-1598)

You should first run the Acronis program manually and create a manual full backup of your system. The instructions are the same as steps 5 thru 15 below with a trailing >Proceed
