Incremental backup


#1

Hi,
Is it taking the incremental backup or overall backup?
I mean, Incremental backup only uploads the changed file.

Thanks,

I’m not really sure if I understand your question correctly but restic always makes a full backup. Every snapshot is a complete copy of a directory (or multiple directories) at this time.

Ok… Thanks…

In general, Restic is really very good idea for the backup/Recovery…

Each “snapshot” in restic is independent of all other snapshots, so there’s no distinction between “incermental” and “full” backups, but restic uses a clever de-duplication function for data, so all backups are always incremental: only new or changed data is uploaded to the repo.

Thanks a Lot … Nice to hear
