Tips: 

 

  • The first backup run after the backup task is created is a full backup. After the first full backup is run, subsequent backups will only back up the changed files.

 

  • Backup image files will not be generated during CBackup backup. The backup files are all block files. 

These block files will be stored in  CBackup's directory under the directory specified by the user, and these block files will be stored in accordance with the user directory structure. 

In addition, if the generated block file exceeds 32MB, CBackup will split the block file according to the standard of 32MB/block. Each block file is 32MB in size, and CBackup will create a folder for these split block files , and save all these segmented block files. If the generated block file does not exceed 32MB, CBackup will save the block file according to the corresponding directory structure.
