    I did my first Files and Folders backup this morning, and it created a folder
    with the following name: Backup Set 2007-05-16 111421. I read in a
    third-party book that the format to be expected was of the form: Backup Set
    YYYY-MM-DD HHMMSS. My backups name looked quite reasonable because I made a
    note that I started the backup at 11:15 (on my wristwatch). So far, so good.

    I then started a Complete PC Backup. The image backup set was named Backup
    2007-05-16 154334. (I did not forget to type the word "Set" in the folder
    name.) The time field in the name suggests a timestamp of 3:43 PM. The only
    problem is that I started the Complete PC Backup at 11:35 AM. It was
    finished when I returned to the PC about 2:00 PM.

    My question is: What is the naming convention for Complete PC Backups?

    Correction in the above: I started the Complete PC Backup at 11:43 AM. So I
    guess the Complete PC Backup timestamp is Coordinated Universal Time. (I'm
    in Eastern Time Zone.)
