FAQ :

  • Incremental Backup captures only the changes made since the last incremental backup. Saves both time and storage space, and ensures that your backup is up to date.
  • Differential Backup  captures only the changes made since the last full backup, not since the last differential backup. This requires more storage space, but ensures an easier, more reliable restore. Many organizations struggle with incremental vs. differential backup solutions.
  • Cloud Backup is a growing alternative to traditional backup that sends a copy of data to a public or private cloud,
  • Scheduled Backup is The best way to insure that backups are done in a consistent and timely manner
  • Live CD is a complete bootable computer installation including operating system which runs in a computer’s memory
