3 Types Of Data Backup In Computer Security
In my previous article, I have talked about some of the reasons why you should take data backup serious. I said it in that article that, when you backup your data, it will prevent a situation where you will lose precious data to hackers and viruses. In this article, I want to look at three types of data backup in computer security. Follow me as we will look at that together in this article.
Now the types…
#1 Full/Normal Data Backup
This type of data backup copies all the files when backing up data. This includes system files, application files, user files and the entire operating system as well.
This types of data backup copy all this data into an external media that serves as a backup for the files. This ensures that the files are still available in case anything happens.
#2 Incremental backup
This only copies the files created or changed after the last backup exercise was done. Incremental backup takes less time and space but makes the job of restoring files difficult for users.
#3 Differential Backup
This copies only the files changed or created that has been changed from the last incremental or normal backup. This process takes less time and space and it is very good in restoring data quickly.
