Backup types we recommend
A full backup is a complete backup of all files, folders and any other data. This option is best to use for first time backup as it is resource intensive and requires a lot of storage space.The advantage of this type of backup is restoring is much faster and easier as the complete list of files are stored each time.
Incremental backup is a backup of all changes made since the last backup. With incremental backups, one full backup is done first and any incremental backups are just the changes made since the last backup. The result is a much faster backup then a full backup for each backup run. Storage space used is much less than a full backup.
It is recommended to backup all your data every day, however depending on your requirements and needs this could be hourly, daily, weekly or monthly. Our IT consultants will be able to advise you on the best course of action depending on your business requirements and needs.
