Incremental vs Differential Backup: Difference Explained

Incremental Backup vs Differential Backup

There are three main types of backup: full, differential and incremental. And the devil, really, is in the names. Full backup means that you are performing backup of all files each time; incremental backup will only do new and changed files or parts of files since the last backup. Differential backup will also upload new and modified files or parts of the files, but it compares itself with the full backup.

We have a separate article on incremental backup, and now we’re going to explain how differential backup works and focus on the difference between incremental and differential backup. Continue reading

In this article, we will talk about incremental backup, its strengths and weaknesses, and about the implementation of incremental backup in CloudBerry Backup software.
