I have created the settings and performed the backups to an external hard drive but I now want to edit the settings for each of the backups and change them to Incremental. The only problem is that it won't allow me to edit the current backups (or have I missed something :rolleyes:). And when I create an incremental backup, it informs me that I can't use the existing copy task (as per the image)...
Do I need to create a new action? I would have thought that it would be allowed to create an incremental backup over a current one as per other backup programs that I have used in the past.


This problem has been solved...it seems that I should have selected incremental at the start and the setting would have backed up everything and then incrementally thereafter...

cheers
