Running AOMEI standarda 4.0.6 on Win7 SP! w/500GB HDD. With 239GB shown as used, the backup file size is 341 GB, even with Smart Backup checked. Is this normal? Thanks
Did you encrypt the drive?
No, the drive was not encrypted
My mistake, the drive was encrypted
If the drive is encrypted, Backupper will backup all sectors of disks or partitions whether they are used or not.
OK, that explains it - thank you
