File back up re-backs up unchanged files

    When I make a back up of my files using the back up and restore center, the
    system backs up the same files every time regardless of whether they were
    modified since the last backup or not. I think it should only back up
    changed or new files since the last back up. How do I fix this?

  2. I've got the very same problem. It is quite annoying, because most of the
    un-changed files are quite large files in my Documents or Pictures folders,
    resulting in massive weekly backups. I use most of them quite frequently, so
    (re)moving them isnt' really an option...

    Hope someone can help...

    Best regards,
