Hi,

I want to make a new backup of some maps with a lot of different stuff in it.
Some time ago I just put the maps on my external hard drive and use this only as storage, don't work with it. The original files stay on my pc, i delete some or i make new files in it.
Now I want to update my backup, but don't like to do it with the backup program i got from Lacie. It just makes a new map and transfers everything, but that's not what I like: I want to keep all the old files and just put the new among them. If you copy all the files to my backupspace, i can click "yes to all" if he recognizes a file that i allready had, but I would find it great to click "no to all". Like it only copies the files that don't exist.
Is it possible to fix this button and action, or is there another solution for this problem?

Thanks! :)

You need to make what's called an 'incremental' backup, where only files that are new or have changed since the last backup are actually backed up. But to make incremental backups you will need to use a proprietary backup utility which has that feature.
