Hi! There are 3 most common types of backup: full backup, incremental backup and differential backup.

  • Full Backup: Full backup can create a complete copy of the complete data that exists on the computer.
  • Incremental Backup: Incremental backup only backs up files that have changed since the last full/incremental backup.
  • Differential Backup: Differential backup only backs up files that have altered since the last full backup.

For Windows Server Backup, full backup and incremental backup are the backup types it can perform. However, it is worth noting that although Windows indicates that the backup configuration of Windows Server backup includes incremental backup, most people think that its operation mode is actually more like the differential backup.

The above is all the information and advice I can provide you about Windows Server Backup types and the backup solution of Windows servers. I hope this can help you!
