Backup of an operating system is much more serious task than backup photos from a vacation. Even if you made 5000 photos (10000, if you were vacationing with a beautiful girl), all of them quite easily fit on your USB flash drive. But in the case of Windows 8 disk image backup, you can forget about the flash drive - an external hard drive capacity may be not enough!
Under these conditions, a full Windows 8 backup in the “classic” form of copying or archiving starts to be a very large and time-consuming. However it’s not a reason to worry about. Try differential backup software - Handy Backup!
Windows 8 differential backup is more elegant backup utility, because in fact every time you do a differential backup you save not all the data, but only changes made since the last full backup.
Remember yourself, do you reinstall your programs every day, or make significant changes to the registry? In this picture it is shown schematically how that works:
Thus, Windows 8 differential backup is a faster method of the backup. However, do not forget about you need first make a full backup. The other advantage is easy restoring: you only need the last differential backup (and a full backup) to restore the data.
An incremental backup differs from the other types of backup. The difference is that Windows 8 incremental backup saves only the data from last successful incremental backup.
The main advantage of such a backup it’s smaller than differential or full backups. If you set up an automatic backup schedule, it will reduce the load of your computer and free up its resources for other tasks.
The disadvantage of Windows 8 incremental backup lies in the field of recovery. When you restore Windows 8 operating system, you will require a full backup and the entire chain of incremental backups. The “incremental restore” will usually take more time comparing to other types.
