Just installed WHS.

When the computers are backed up, is it a full backup or incremental?

I can see 200gb of data taking up a lot of space and bandwidth if its backed up in full each night


Ask me about Web Servers, Wordpress and the internet in general.

It's an incremental backup. Every weekend WHS will use the configuration in the Backup settings to remove old backups, consolidate space, etc.

Note that it includes automatic deduplication. If a file is present in more than one PC in your network, then the file is only stored once.

You can retain a backup beyond its consolidation time setting by clicking a PC in the WHS console, right-click and select View Backups.

If you turn off backup for a PC the consolidation setting is still active. If the settings say "store one backup for two months" then WHS will remove the files after two months - unless you check the backup list and select the option to keep the backup.

That's the Zen of WHS Backup.
