Re: How in the heck do you define an incrementa

Also, is there a difference between an incremental and a differential? If so, how do you do that and would it take less time/space?
Yes, there is a difference between incremental and differential backups, but Ghost does not support differential backups.
Incremental backup = All changes since the last incremental backup.
Differential backup = All changes since the last full backup.
Each method offers its own advantages and disadvantages, but neither is inherently superior. Symantec has chosen to implement incremental backups in Ghost.
