    3.  Backup Types
    7m 5s
    During this video, you'll learn more about the main types of backups available when you're looking after them yourself and your on-premises organization. You'll learn that full backups are used at some point in almost all backup strategies, but they don't have to be performed often as they can be slow, depending on the volume of data. You'll also learn the difference between an incremental and differential backup. Incremental backups result in a shorter backup time but differential backups result in a shorter restore time. It generally comes down to what is more valuable to you, a fast backup or a fast restore? FREE ACCESS
