Backup Types

You can perform the following types of backups, either immediately or on a schedule:

  • Full backup: Backs up the entire virtual machine. This backup is the most comprehensive.
  • Incremental backup: Backs up virtual machine data that changed after the most recent backup.
  • Synthetic Full backup: Consolidates virtual machine data from the most recent full backup with subsequent incremental backups.

For more information on backup types, see Backup/Archive Options.

Note: By default, the option to perform a differential backup is not included in the Backup Options for Subclient dialog box.

  • To display the Differential backup option, add the bEnableVSADifferentialBackup additional setting to the CommServe system as shown in the following table.

    For instructions on adding additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Adding or Modifying an Additional Setting.
