What is ImageManager, and do I need to install it?
ImageManager is a utility specifically for use with the Continuous Incremental backup schedule. It monitors the folder where your ShadowProtect or SPX backups are stored and, according to the schedule you specify, collapses regular incremental backups into daily, weekly, and monthly backup files. This helps to minimize the number of backup files on the destination and the amount of space used for storing them. It also ensures that all backups except for the initial full backup will be comparatively small in size, which can be useful in situations where backups are being sent off site.
Use of the Continuous Incremental schedule and ImageManager is not recommended for most home and desktop users. If you are using a Weekly or Monthly backup schedule, you do not need to install or use ImageManager.
