Without a full backup, how are you going to know which file to backup in your differential backup?

The archive bit...  I'm with the OP on this.  I just upgraded to BE 2012 from BE 2010.  Now, I can't run an incremental or differential backup of my data until I run a full backup first (which takes ~60 hours to complete).  This jeopardizes the recoverability of my data.  I don't want to be forced to run a full backup at any time.  I want the ability to run incrementals or differential backups at my discretion.  I'm not happy with BE 2012, which is so constricted and overwrought, it's infuriating.  I feel like it's specifically tailored to small-business solutions with its rigid backup paradigm and hand-holding.  I was much happier with BE 2010...
