Scheduled Backups

Backup Method

Webuzo provide two types of backup i.e.  Compressed and Incremental for Local and Remote backup.

Compressed Backup :   Compressed backups involve reducing the size of the backup data by using compression algorithms like using tar.gz file. It is supported by both local and remote backup method, as well as all backup types.

Incremental Backup: Incremental backups are a backup strategy where only the changes made since the last backup are stored. Incremental backups are faster to create than full backups because they only deal with new or modified data. Incremental supports both local and remote backup servers. However, a Backuply Pro-License is required for remote incremental backups, and it is only compatible with Full and Home backup types
