Can I change my recovery point option from "independent" to "recovery set" for incremental back up

I received and installed Ghost 15 with my Samsung SSD purchase. (Win7 64bit)

I want to back my two drives to another internal drive ("F:\" 1.5TB) and it seems I can only create a full backup.

Because I want to backup the "C:\" drive (roughly 130GB) and on the "D:\" drive (more than 600GB ) the full backup takes a long time and I would prefer a full back only once a week.

How can this be done?

TIA

ArminHeinlein,

Do "One Time Backups".

Are you sure, you don't want to do daily incrementals too? They don't take nearly as long as a full backup.

I think the user wants to do incrementals every day with a new base image weekly.

If thats the case, on the screen you show in your screen shot, click "edit settings" on the left hand side.

Click next a few times until you get to this screen.

In the middle section select "Weekly".  Click the Custom button if you want to specify what day of the week a full base image is created.  On the top section, click every day.

Once a week it will make a base image and the other 6 days it will make incrementals.

Sorry if I misunderstood.
