B Windows 7 incremental backup software to protect your data and files all the time. Backup hard drive partition data to image which can be compressed to save space and time.

Overview of Windows 7 incremental backup

What is incremental backup? It protects data by creating multiple copies that are based on the differences in those data: a successive copy of the data contains only that portion which has changed since the preceding copy has been created.

The most basic form of incremental backup involves only those files that have changed since the last backup. Since changes are typically slow, incremental backup is much smaller and quicker than a full backup. For instance, following a full backup on Friday, a Monday backup will contain only those files that changed since Friday. A Tuesday backup will contain only those files that changed since Monday, and so on. A full restoration of data will naturally be slower since all increments must be restored. Should any one of the copies created fail, including the first (full), restoration will be incomplete?

Windows 7 is advanced that you can create an incremental backup with its "Backup and Restore" function. You can back up system, whole partition or disk to the image file as you want. Before proceeding this operating, you'd better confirm if there is enough space to store the image files because Windows 7 will not compress them.

However, it cannot back up a single file or several files. Fortunately, professional Windows 7 backup software will help finish this task.
