Hi Ben:
Thank you. You can use compressed or uncompressed. I use uncompressed.
And if you need to restore, it is very easy. What I recommend is to
read the excellent instructions and to "play" with the system as much
you can, creating test backups, using the scheduling facility,
letting the computer on standby or idle during the night in order the
back up do not disturb your work. There is a feature called "awake"
the computer to start back up. You even can program it to delete
previous backups, preserving the last one, or two, or whatever you
decide,
in order yo always have a fresh and complete one. Even if you program
incremental backups, the software always start with a first full
backup and then the incremental ones. If you decide to keep the
latest 3 backups and than erase the first one, it will start again
with a full backup. I am sorry if I didn't make myself understand,
but my English is bad.
Kind regards,
Joao

Thanks for the detailed description. This is the sort of information I was seeking. I have this on list to try. I am going to choose one or two free downloads and play with them and make a final choice. Today is photo day, going to drive out to a place where they have spotted snowy owls. I hope this fog clears off before I get there.
