Incremental Backup ~ To me is that each Backup only adds those items that have changed since the last Backup.

Incremental Backup is the old term. What terms are currently used for this type of Backup

A full backup covers your entire system and all the data you want to protect. It provides you with a very reliable recovery option, but is slower than other backup variants, and requires a lot more in terms of storage space.

An Incremental backup means exactly that - a backup that includes changes made since the last incremental backup.

Then there is what's referred to as a Differential backup. This records only those changes made since the last full backup.

A good backup application will offer all three types.

But each Program appears to use a different name for them.

I am trying to navigate the words they use
