I back up my media with acronis. I have a windows 7 pc with 120gb hard drive. The only things I back up are videos and music and photos and documents, I do not back up applications or os or anything else. As I gain media, I do incremental backups. Now I have 140gb worth of backup, I think some things must be doubles.

So when you make an incremental back up and select a folder, does it backup everything in the folder again or only the things that have been modified since the last back up?

It's my understanding that "incremental" backup only backs up the new stuff. I could be wrong, but that's the way understood it. I too use Acronis, I only back up every few weeks and have'nt paid any attention to amount of space left on my drive.. :thumbsup:
