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.
  • Differential backup: Backs up virtual machine data that changed after the most recent full backup.
  • Synthetic Full backup: Consolidates virtual machine data from the most recent full backup with subsequent incremental and differential backups.

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