Restoring incremental backup only

Post by ibrahim52 » Nov 25, 2018 11:46 am

Hi,

First of all THANK YOU for providing amazing backup agent for FREE. Really appreciate each team members hardwork to invent something so flawless and yet providing full support on it. I have a scenario where the data was over 1.8TB (just the data partition) and moved to new computers additional volume of 2TB. All is well, except due to big data size, it took me over 24 hours to finish the restore operation but unfortunately group of users have updated some of the data in old PC shared folder.

Hence, I am looking for a possibility to restore the data again but this time only the incremental data and not starting restoration operation all over again.

Hello and welcome to the community Ibrahim,

Thank you for the kind words, glad o hear that you like our product! May I ask what restore type you are using? Instead of using volume level restore you could run file level recovery and restore only desired file version. Will it work for your case? Cheers!

hi @ll,
i have another question to incremental restore:

Do i have to restore every incremental backup since last Fullbackup (with the boot-CD, to access OS-Volume), when i want to restore all my Data since Fullbackup?
i watched a tutorial on youtube and the person said, that i have to do all incrementals in the correct order to restore the volumes to the latest possible Time.
example: Fullbackup 10 days ago, incremental Backups every 2nd Day after that, System crash on Day 0 means i will first restore the Fullbackup and than go all other incrementals for the last period ?

thanks in advance.
Andreas

Hello Andreas,

Does not sound right: you can perform bare metal recovery from any restore point (works identical for full or incremental restore point). Cheers!
