How do you resume backups to follow the same sequential numbering system of the original backup mring numbers of the backups that already exists in the backup location.  I don't want it to start a new full backup and new incremental backups.  I now have 2 sets of full and incremental backups with 2 different mring numbers( 1 set has 1 full and 13 incremental backups and the other set has 1 full and 30 incremental backups)..

Easiest way to explain this issue is the current last incremental listed ends with mring number(last 4 numbers) 13-13.  I want the next incremental mring number to be 14-14, not 01-01.

Hope you following what I'm trying to explain.

Reflect will only create a new Incremental or Differential within an existing set if it determines that the existing set “matches” the data being backed up in the current job, otherwise it will create a Full even if you asked for something else. For image backups, “matching” requires that the existing and current backups contain the exact same partitions and partition sizes. A clean install would create new partition volume IDs and a new GUID or disk signature depending on whether your disk uses GPT or MBR, so there’s no way for you to continue appending to a previous set after wiping your disk and setting it up from scratch. You need to start a new set, and each set maintains its own sequential numbering. Your wiped hard drive is effectively a completely different disk, and I don’t know of any image backup solution that will let you take a backup set based on one disk and make a new Incremental that came from another disk.
