Uranium Backup
The most complete and versatile software for multiple data transfers and backups.

Configuring a files and folders incremental or differential backup

Feature available in all Uranium Backup editions, Free included.

Since version 9, Uranium Backup can perform incremental backup and/or differential backups of files and foldes.

Before explaining the configuration procedure, let’s talk about the differences between full, incremental and differential backup:

  • Full Backup: it’s a complete copy of the data, without any exclusion. As simple as it sounds.
  • Incremental Backup: it’s a copy of the data created and modified since the last backup performed (both full and incremental). The backup will occupy less space but you will need the latest full backup and all the incremental backups – performed after the latest full – in order to restore the data.
  • Differential Backup: it’s a copy of the data created and modified since the latest full backup performed. The backup will occupy more space than the incremental mode but you will only need the latest differential backup and the latest full backup in order to restore the data.

In our example we are configuring an incremental backup of a folder in a local destination (internal HD).

Create a new backup set:
Incremental backup - set-up

Add a files and folders incremental or differential backup:
Add a files and folders for incremental backup

Select one or more folders to backup:
Select one or more folders to backup

Specify the backup folder and the backup mode (incremental or differential). You can also set how many full copies you want to maintain and when to perform the full backup:
Specify the backup folder and the backup mode

Scheduling a backup execution for each workday, Uranium Backup will follow this schema:
