Thanks for the suggestion.
For imaging/snapshotting, what is the recommended intervals? I read some people doing it once a day, every hour, every two hours or even doing it continuously in real-time to reduce the effect of ransomware.
Doesn't doing it in hourly or less than hourly term creates lots of files which may be difficult to find the right ones when needed for recovery?
All depends on your environment. There is no specific 'best'.
I do nightly, or every other day, or weekly Incremental, or Full backups.
Each system is a bit different.
My main system, a Full, followed by nightly Incrementals. One for each drive.
Keep for a rolling 30 days,
My little HTPC, a Full Image once a week.
Keep 5 copies.
My spouses system, Full image every other day, keep for a rolling 30 days.
If you need one specific file, from 'last week', Macrium lets you mount an Image as a drive letter.
Identify which day you want, mount it, and go get that specific file.
Or if you need to recover a whole drive after some nasty infection...go back in time to an Image made before the infection happened.
