Nick & Arvy,
Nick, I had already read the first article but not the second. It was very helpful.
I think I now understand backup sets pretty well. After rereading the article on what triggers a full backup I still don't know why that happened previously. That's not really a problem: what's important is that I'm now clear on what the effect will be when I do different things.
So I'm going move all my *.mrimg files from the old location to the new one, update the Backup Definition File to refer to the new location, and tell Reflect to look for backup files in the new folder. I believe that the next backup (which should be incremental) won't be forced to a full, and I believe that if I need to use the backups from before the change they'll work correctly. Also, my understanding is that I can move around backup files however I want, and as long as none are missing or corrupted and I tell Reflect where they are then everything will work correctly.
Thanks again for your help.
