Incremental Backups

Post by Nicolas Forwood » Mon Mar 06, 2006 9:28 pm

I have some difficulty understanding how to do incremental backups with AISbackup. Let’s say that I run a backup job for my working files (2.8 GB) and it is successful. When I write new data to my working files, do I have to run the same backup job again or there is a way to just append the new data to the existing backup job? Thank you

Sessions

You just run the backup again, a new session based on differences between the last backup state (known as the last session) and the PC's state now. I will set-up a web tutorial which I hope will demonstrate the principle in both backup and restore.

I understand that when 100's of thousands of files are involved it can be a little difficult to see what is happening.
