Full backup and incremental backup are two different backup types, there are both similarities and differences between them, in this article, you may get a brief idea about them and a powerful software which can help you do both of the two backup tasks.

Full backup and incremental backup: the distinctions

There are different kinds of data backup types, full and incremental backups are the two important styles. A full backup is a backup that can be restored independently of any other backup. An incremental links with the last backup before it and only includes changes made since previous of any type (full, differential or incremental).

A full backup, in another word, backs up all the files in a partition or on a disk by copying all disk sectors with data to the backup image file. Creating a full backup is the basic backup type which can protect your system or files from catastrophic damages. It is the simplest form of backup mode, but it’s also the most time-consuming, space-intensive and the least flexible one.

Full and incremental backup with AOMEI Backupper

Backup is the activity of copying files or database so that they will be preserved in case of equipment failure or other catastrophe. For personal computer users, backup is especially necessary but often neglected. In the past, data backup is not available to all people, but now computer data backup is a fast developing filed. New trends appear, new solutions spring up, backup methods and technologies become more complex. AOMEI Backupper generated under such circumstances.

AOMEI Backupper is great and powerful, with which you can do both of the two backup modes: full backup and incremental backup; you may also restore the backup at the same time. It is easy to handle with even for a jackaroo, what you need to do is just with a few clicks of your mouse.

Incremental Backup

Because of space limitations, it’s far from enough for describing every feature of the software. AOMEI Backupper is completely free of charge, with its help, you may do full backup and incremental backup and you may go to download to experience more of the features.
