True Image restore question

I backed up my C: onto an external hard drive. After the back up, there is
MyBackUp 1 and MyBackUp 2. These are the original copies onto the external
drive. When I do an incremental back up a few weeks later, I have 1 and 2
above and also MyBackUp 3 and MyBackUp 4. I just did another incremental
backup and now have in addition to 1, 2, 3 and 4, MyBackUp 5 and MyBackUp 6.
My question is should I need to restore C:, will I use all 6 or just the
most recent one, or most recent 2 as they seem to copy in two's, ie. , 1and
2, then next time, 3 and 4, then this time, 5 and 6. Thanks in advance.
Ken

You click on the date you want to restore to. The rest is automatic.

I use TI. What I do is create a full image each time in a new folder. then
delete the older folder.

Since you did incremental backups you will need all of the images, they
depend on the previous image to work. If you need to restore the pages will
walk you through the procedure. All information is contained in the manual,
open it and read it.

I make full TI drive images each time to minimize any potential problems in
the event a restore is ever actually needed. I just delete older images as
they become duplicated and out dated. By keeping only OS system on C drive
and all data on D drive my XP OS stays under 10GB, the back up image 5GB or
less and only takes under 8 minutes to create and another 8 minutes to verify
for full assurance.
