Well, at 3 GB a night it starts to add up. I checked with
Veritas, the makers of NTBackup. They say what I want to
do isn't possible.
I'm going to resort to creating 7 different backup files
and jobs - one for each day of the week (1 normal and 6
incremental). Each week will replace the previous' - much
more complicated than what I wanted though.
