How Differential Backup Works
Differential backup is a process of backing up only those files that were created or changed since the last full backup. For example, if you do a full backup on Sunday and then perform daily differential backups, then Fridayís differential will contain all data that appeared or changed for the whole work week.
Difference Between Differential and Incremental Backup
The difference between differential and incremental backup is that the amount of data being backed up is calculated from full backup, rather than from previous backup. I.e. if you repeat two incremental backups without changing any files, the second backup will contain nothing, while two consequent differential backups will be identical.
Handy Backup supports both differential and incremental backup technologies. Learn about incremental backup...

Another advantage of making differential backups is that it enables you to quickly restore data in case of a disaster. Unlike incremental backups which need to go through the entire chain from the last to the first backup, restoration of differential backups is done in two steps, using the most recent full and the most recent differential backup.
How It Works on Different Types of Data
Letís imagine some real-life examples how the technology of differential backups works in different situations:
