Full backup

There are two main types of backup - full backup and incremental backup. The choice of backup type depends on user particular needs. Full backup is used for reserve copying of the entire data array. This means that whenever you launch a backup task all selected files are backed up without any exceptions, so old files are copied together with the new and changed files.

Full backup provides more consistent care of all data files as it copies everything just in case. However, it takes longer and usually requires more storage space. In real life full backup is normally combined with incremental backup. While incremental backup takes care of new and changed files only, full backup copies all information to make sure not a single bit of information is lost.

Together full and incremental backups can form a backup rotation plan where incremental backup takes place at shorter intervals of time, while full backup is performed at the end of each backup cycle to guarantee that each and every file is included in the backup. When doing data recovery, the last full backup is taken into account as well as all consecutive incremental backups.

Novosoft Office Backup supports both full and incremental backup. In fact, you can assign both types of backup for the same data array and thus create a backup rotation plan that most suits your needs and guarantees the best data security.
