BackUp Chosen Files Each Day

By daksarch - 1 September 2017 1:56 PM

I am in the throws of trying Reflect 7 before I buy it.

I am using it because I had a problem with bad sectors on my C: drive and I had to Mirror the whole H/D onto my backup disk F: and then transfer to a new C: H/D
One I had found out how to do it, It worked a treat.

I would now like to be able to set Reflect up in such a way as to allow me to just click on an icon on my descktop and Reflect to backup all the files and folders  that  I have previously designated, to my (backup drive)   Mostly Word and Excel

these files are in a folder called, lets say, ONE.  

Will Reflect be able to determine what files have been altered since last backup and only backup those ones?

Is this possible? If so I would appreciate some help in doing it.

Yes, if you use an Incremental or Differential backup (if you don't know what those are, I'd advise reading the Reflect user guide), then Reflect determine which files have changed since a previous backup and back up those files. And as long as you've pre-defined the files/folders you want to back up in a Reflect definition file (which you'd have to create anyway in order to use Differential or Incremental backups), then you can also create a desktop shortcut that will run that backup on-demand, which can be used instead of or in addition to a regular schedule:
