What are the basic fundamentals of Full Backups, Incrementals and Differentials as it pertains to backup time, storage footprint and recoverability.
Type of BackupTime to BackupStorage FootprintRecoverability
Full backups Longest duration to backup regularly, greatest amount of storage necessary, least restore time and overhead
Differential backups Medium duration to backup regularly, medium amount of storage used, medium amount of restore time and overhead
Incremental backups Shortest backup duration, smallest storage footprint, (traditionally) longest restore time and overhead
