  • If the initial backup of a computer is a full backup, are all others differential backups?

  • As far as the end user is concerned, all backups are full backups (unless you exclude folders). In reality, only the first backup you ever do to your server, of the first computer, will be a "full" backup of every cluster of data on that computer. See the Home Computer Backup and Restore technical brief for some additional information about backup.
