Is there a quick way to finish a backup that was interrupted?

I was doing my Six Month Main Drive Backup with WinRescue XP the other day, and after several hours I was down to the last 10% when my apartment building lost power.

My computer is fine, thank you. About 90% of the files were saved safely onto the external hard drive (which I use solely for backups).

I know there are the options of "Incremental" and "Differential" backups - which one is appropriate in this situation?

I'd rather not have to waste another afternoon doing a complete backup if there's a way around it.


A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

   First you should check to see if 90% of the backup is there and if it can be accessed.  I say that because WinRescue does a lot of tying up loose ends at the end of the backup process which it would not have been able to do.  But it is still possible that 90% of the backup is available.  To check this, try restoring a file from the parial backup.
   If the partial backup is good, you should be able to do either an Incremental Backup or a Differential Backup (in your case, they will do the same thing) to get the others.  It is possible that some of the files were not backed up but marked as backed up because of the abrupt ending of the backup in which case they will not get backed up in an Incremental or Differential backup.
   For more information on Incremental and Differential backups, please see WinRescue's Help in the Backup Properties section.
