Criteria for selecting files when performing full, incremental and differential backup

files for backup

A fundamental function of backup and restore software is the ability to copy data from one place to another. No matter if the backup data are stored on volumes, files, images or on magnetic tapes – we assume that data are being copied from location A to location B. In case of data loss in location A, a backup program should change the backup location and copy the data from location B back to location […]
