My backup is smaller than the original and has fewer files. Why?
A default backup profile will not copy the following:
- desktop.ini files
- hiberfil.sys (the Windows hibernation file)
- pagefile.sys (the Windows memory paging file)
- Recycle bin folder
- System Volume Information folder
- thumbs.db files
- win386.swp (the Windows memory paging file)
- \Windows\Temp\ folder
- Junction points are not followed
This may result in fewer backup files and hence a smaller backup size.
