- So first backup all 4 blocks will be moved to destination
ABCD (Source) ---> ABCD (Destination)
- In the next backup cycle let’s say the block A changed to A'. So this time the file is A'BCD. Therefore only A' will be moved to the destination like this, and the block A will be saved in a separate location
A' (Source) ----> A'BCD (Destination)
A (+ Meta data for version info)
- In the next backup let’s say again A' changed to A'', so the file is now A''BCD
A'' (Source) ----> A''BCD (Destination)
- Choose a drive that contains sufficient space to store your data. Your external storage drives should contain at least 2.5 times the storage capacity of the data that you want to back up.
- When reusing an external storage drive, make sure that the drive is empty or contains only data that you do not need.
- The backup destination drive must be larger than the partition(s) that you want to back up (including freespace). [I.E. if you want to back up a 200 GB partition that contains 70 GB of data, the backup destination must be larger than 200GB.]
