Never overwrite backups immediately: Always keep a "grandfather...father...son" relationship so you can avoid things like this. It's also a good idea to keep several different physical backup media which you rotate each time you do a backup, and keep them physically disconnected from the computer once the backup is complete. That way you are insured against a single hardware failure, and against ransomware which can also encrypt your backup devices if they are on-line.

I run several 4TB USB drives, and do a full image every two weeks, with a different drive each time, and I keep a "historic" 8 or so images on each drive. But then, I've been called paranoid before, so it doesn't bother me... Laugh | :laugh:

I'd also recommend AOMEI Backupper - but I may have done that here once or twice before!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
