As a professional Windows backup software, Hasleo Backup Suite supports differential backup, incremental backup and full backup on Windows Vista/Server 2008 or later operating systems. With the increase of backup versions, backup image files occupy more and more storage space, especially in the case of backing up a large amount of data, this problem will become more prominent.

Below we will show you how to manually merge backup images to free up storage space, and you can also configure the backup image retention policy in the Backup options to automatically perform the image merge operation after the backup operation is complete.
