I will explain this after explaining the differential scheme. The administrator creates a backup policy. I actually remember disk drives with hydraulic actuated heads and computers with 4kb of memory. If you plug in the wrong drive one night, or can't move them, the backup will just run on whatever disk is attached at that time unless you schedule those tasks to only run on certain days. Seriously, I've tried to get end users to get this software and do their own backups but it doesn't do much more than the built-in backup utilities so it would be better if they focused on more advanced tech users as their customer base.

Pros: Can be set up for daily backups Runs in the background Easy computer restore feature Cons: Some 3red party software has to be reinstalled If for some reason the backup does not complete your backs from that day forward are not usable Overall: We have had to use the restore feature a few times. Thankfully the fix is simple. After a specified period of time by default, 6 months old backup copies will be automatically deleted. A network admin may have many images in bulk storage, and with 2014 it was easy to pick one and drop it on a drive. Monthly backups run every fourth Friday, and weekly backups run on all other Fridays. The Tower of Hanoi ToH backup scheme is a useful compromise.
Other disk imaging software I have tested did not offer this level of granularity in sending email notifications. For a four-level scheme, it is four days.
