Windows 7 Professional: Image backup
Can I delete a drive image backup from my external hard drive, and create a new drive image backup?
(Instead of retaining a drive image back up, and adding incremental back ups) - using Windows 7 Professional.
I prefer to create a brand new total drive image back up each time, instead of partial backups.

Hi, and WELCOME TO TECHIMO - from the Folding@Home Team [#111]...!
I haven't checked it myself yet, but when you go through the process of setting up the backup you should be given the choice of which backup type you want to use...
If you've already configured the backup and want to have "Father Son" backups, where you swap the external drives over periodically, then you should set the drives' drive letter outside of the normal usage range* (including USB sticks, etc) and set the backup to use this drive letter.
* = This is so that you don't wind up trying to put your backup onto the wrong drive, like a thumb drive/USB stick..
