Advanced settings file backup

Under Advanced in the file backup options you can specify further settings.

Lock drive while imaging

While processing a file backup you can lock your drive where the folders/files to be imaged are located. This prevents any changes from being made to the drive during creation of an image. The drive will no longer be displayed in Explorer and all applications will be closed. The drive is not locked by default. If the drive is not locked, changes will be buffered either in the snapshot cache (if installed) or over the volume shadow copy service of Windows so that these changed won’t influence the image.

Use check sums to administer unchanged data (for incremental file backup)

Unchanged data are stored as default via checksums by the method Image of the changes. These files are fractionally larger. For this it is sufficient if you enter a previous image of the changes as source image for the next Image of the changes(with checksums). This function is activated by default. If you save all images in a single folder, you can deactivate this function. Your images will then take up less space on the disk.

  • Make sure that Use checksums to administer unchanged data under File backup/File backup options/Advanced the function.
