Limit the number of recovery point sets saved for this backup

Each new recovery point set replaces the oldest set on your backup destination drive.

Enable search engine support

Select this option to let a search engine, such as Google Desktop, index all of the file names that are contained in each recovery point. By indexing the file names, you can then use your search engine to locate files you want to restore.

This option is for NTFS file systems only.
