File and Folder Backup

Hi - I am running SSR 2013 and I'm doing a daily File and Folder Backup , but I noticed that it defaults to an incremental and only backs up the changed files.

I want to force it to backup the Files/Folder regardless of whether it changed or not.  And, I want to specify that it should only keep 7 days worth

of this backup because the entire machine gets backed up weekly.  Can you tell me how to do this please?

Hello Cindy,

SSR is not designed for a File/ Folder level backup , thus the feature of it backing up all the files/ folders and keeping a set for 7 days worth , can be worked by taking a Drive base backup.

File / Folder backup for SSR is a verion based backup , thus you can try the option below :

Option : Backup my Computer

Type : Independent Recovery point

Schedule  it for 7 days of the week.

Thank You
