Restoring a Backup.

I need to restore my files to my HD. I have a full backup from May/04 and a
number of "New or Changed file" backups up to Nov 1/04. The software is
Backup MyPC from StompSoft.

After doing a Restore of the full backup must I restore ALL the "New or
Changed file" backups or can I just use the LAST one?

Peter.

Are the "new or changed" backups incremental or differential?

I suggest asking StompSoft, whoever they are.

Restore using the last differential backup and then follow with all
incremental backups that were made after that last differential backup.

The Default setting during backup seems to be Differential. I guess the most
recent Differential is all that is needed in the absence of any Incremental?

The original full back up, then the most recent differential. If you backed
up everything using the same media, then just doing a restore should take
care of it.
