Backup is the activity of copying files or databases or any other data so that they will be preserved and can be restored in case of equipment failure or other catastrophe.
The backup of data can be done “online” or “offline”
In Online mode the users can continue to access the data while it is being backed up
In offline mode the application that is accessing the data needs to be stopped before the backup is started. As a result the data is not available to users while the backup is happening.
Types of Backup
Full backup is a method of backup where all the files and folders selected for the backup will be backed up
Incremental backup is a backup of all changes made since the last backup. With incremental backups, one full backup is done first and subsequent backup runs are just the changes made since the last backup
Differential backup is a backup of all changes made since the last full backup. With differential backups, one full backup is done first and subsequent backup runs are the changes made since the last full backup
