    Multilevel incremental

    A more sophisticated incremental backup scheme involves multiple numbered backup levels . A full backup is level 0. A level n backup will back up everything that has changed since the most recent level n-1 backup. Suppose for instance that a level 0 backup was taken on a Sunday. A level 1 backup taken on Monday would include only changes made since Sunday. A level 2 backup taken on Tuesday would include only changes made since Monday. A level 3 backup taken on Wednesday would include only changes made since Tuesday. If a level 2 backup was taken on Thursday, it would include all changes made since Monday because Monday was the most recent level n-1 backup.


    Free one would be great. Thanks in advance.

  • windows provides a backup utility which an perform incremental backups pretty well. depend s o your version of Windows OS.

    For WINXP Pro, start>programs>accessories>system tools>backup

    you then have to select advanced, to be able to tweak the settings for an incremental backup

  • Yes as the above poster has suggested, here is another way to start the backup. Open command prompt and then type ntbackup. this is a great program that will do what you want. It looks basic but it does alot.
