Incremental backup and differential backup

by jamesandbennie In reply to How to do incremental bac ...

A differential backup backs up only the files that changed since the last full back(you do know what full backup is, right?). If you lose one of the differential backup files you can still recover other files.

Incremental backups back up only the changed data, but they only back up the data that has changed since the last backup — be it a full or incremental backup. So if you lose one incremental backup file you cannot recover the following files.

Incremental backup saves more time and space, while differential backup is more safe.

For incremental backup software, according to Google, the first one is acronis($49.99) and the second one is free todo backup
