Subject: systa.bkf file

Lately my ZIP-backup includes a large file Systa.bkf about 247 MB. Also at the same time the backup takes a long time and the file is also approx 249Mb (as an example). Even when I do a differencial backup almost immediately after a full backup.

What is this file and why is it included? I did not see this in the past.

Why do I have a large differencial file soon after a full backup?

In the past, differencial backup was less than 100 MB after a full backup.

Thank you for the comments.

The Systa.bkf file is a system state backup. It is a Windows backup file of all the important system files also those file which a locked an inaccessible as long as Windows is running.
The file is included while you have selected include system state.

Is it really necessary, advisable to back up this file each time including differencial backup?

I guess it showed up since I switched to WIN2K.

No it should not be necessary unless you install new programs or update your windows installation.
