Backup Options - Online Help

Use this dialog box to schedule or immediately run a backup/archive job.

Select Database Backup Type

Full

Specifies the job as a Full backup, which backs up all data for the selected subclient(s).

Incremental

Specifies the job as an Incremental backup, which backs up only that portion of the data that is new or has changed since the last backup.

Differential

Specifies the job as a Differential backup, which backs up only that portion of the data that is new or has changed since the last full backup.

Synthetic Full

Specifies the job as a Synthetic Full backup, which creates a Full backup from existing backup data for the selected subclient or backup set (if applicable). The Synthetic Full backup consolidates the backup data; it does not actually back up data from the client computer.

If applicable for your agent, the Verify Synthetic Full option in the Advanced Backup Options dialog box will include never-changing files in the next backup. This option is enabled by default.

When you save an operation as a script, each option in the dialog box has a corresponding XML element in the script file. When you run the script, you can modify the value in any of these XML elements.
