full + differiential

Post by tangey » Tue May 07, 2019 4:46 pm

When using a full/differiential strategy, does Cobian require the full backup to be accessible when doing the differiential ? I'm using 5 Daily USB sticks, full on fri, diff on mon-Thurs. So the full backup will not be accessible ?

Not if you are using

1) separated backups using timestamps


2) If you uncheck Options-Engine-Advanced-Check if the destination file exists

If those 2 options don't apply, all files will be copied again and again, resulting in full backups every time.
