What is Data Backup and Recovery?

data and system settings in the case that they might be deleted or loss in disaster scenarios.

Different Types of Backup Data
There are many backup software that are made to reduce the struggle with performing backup and recovery operations.
Full Backup: When every single file and folder in
your system is backed up. This takes longer and
requires more space, but can be essential if you
are storing files for a business with records that
you will need in the future. This process can be
run daily, or as often as you need.
Incremental backup: Only the first initial backup
is a full one. However updates will only occur to files
that have been changed since the last backup
operation. This will track and record the date and
time that the changes were made. This can save
more space and time.
Differential backups: Similar to incremental backup
however this type requires more storage space because it will continue to copy all data changed since the previous full backup and recent changes.
