What could possibly be easier than performing a backup? Many things, actually. There are different types of backup and additional features that can help you achieve your specific goals. In this article, we are covering the differences between the most popular types of data backup:
- Full Backup
- Incremental Backup
- Differential Backup
- Synthetic Full Backup
Synthetic full backup is, basically, full backup and incremental backup mixed together. In the end, you get a full backup on the storage, that's incrementally being updated, without unnecessary or outdated data. You always have your up-to-date full backup.
We have developed a synthetic full backup feature for image-based backups in CloudBerry Backup. This enhancement decreases the amount of data uploaded to the cloud and accelerates overall process. We are going to explain the technical background and show how to use the new feature.
