Taking regular backups of your files is a really good habit.
But do you take advantage of incremental backups when backing up your files?
The Incremental Backup concept
An incremental backup is a type of backup that only copies files that have changed since the previous backup.
For example, if a full backup is performed today, the next incremental backup will only take all changed files since today’s backup. This helps reduce the time spent on taking backups and avoiding the repetition of files with the same content.
