YES! It is possible to make an incremental file backup where SimpleBackups only backs up the changed files over time.

The feature it currently experimental, so you need to let us know when you need to enable it for your backup. We are adjusting it with your needs over time to make it awesome.

  1. Create a regular file backup
  2. Chat with us and let us know you want to convert it into an incremental backup
  3. We will enable the option for you afterwards

The first backup run will include all files and folders. The subsequent runs will only include the changed files. Each backup run outputs one compressed tar file with changed files and is uploaded immediately to your preferred cloud storage.

We suggest to pair the incremental backups job with another regular weekly file backup for maximum protection.

Have any questions? We are looking forward to chatting with you.
