Backing up data

About backup methods

The NetVault Backup Plug‑in for FileSystem supports the following backup methods:

Standard Backup method: This method lets you perform native file system backups. The Standard Backup method is supported on all operating systems.
Snapshot-Based Backup method: This method lets you perform snapshot-based backups. A snapshot provides point-in-time copy of data. Snapshots enable consistent backups of data and minimize the time an application is in backup mode.
NOTE: The Backup Files to Storage is supported on any Windows platform and any disk storage. To use the Array-Based Persistent Snapshot and Discard After the data that you want to back up must reside on a supported disk array. Also, for persistent snapshot only backup, only metadata is copied to the target device and snapshot is created on storage array.

About backup types

The NetVault Backup Plug‑in for FileSystem supports the following backup types:

Full Backup: A Full Backup provides a backup of all selected files and folders. Full Backups take longer to complete and consume more backup media. However, restores are faster since the plug-in is only required to restore a single saveset. Full Backups serve as the base backups for subsequent Incremental and Differential Backups.
Incremental Backup: An Incremental Backup provides a backup of files that are new or have changed since the last Full or Incremental Backup. Incremental Backups consume minimum storage space and are quicker to perform. However, data recovery can take more time depending on the number of savesets that the plug-in is required to restore.
Differential Backup: A Differential Backup provides a backup of files that are new or have changed since the last Full Backup. Differential Backups speed up recovery since the plug-in is only required to restore two savesets. However, these backups consume more storage space and take more time to complete than the Incremental Backups. Differential Backups duplicate the data backed up by previous backups of the same type.
