Are you concerned about the possible increase in your Internet bandwidth usage when you start using online data backup? OneBackup offers a proprietary In-File Delta technology, which is designed to reduce your Internet traffic usage.  With this powerful feature, the original file is required to be backed up only once during the first backup job. Once the file is backed up to our secure servers, only changes made to the file will be included in the subsequent backups. There are two types of In-File Delta technology that you can choose from.

Incremental Type

All delta files are created with respect to changes made since the last incremental backup. This means that the last full backup file and ALL incremental delta backup files are required to restore the latest snapshot of the original file.

Differential Type

All delta files are generated with respect to the changes made since the last full backup file (i.e. differential backup). This means that only the last full backup file and the last delta file are required to restore the latest snapshot of a backup file. Other intermediate delta files are only required if you want to restore other snapshots of a backup file. The main benefit of the differential in-file delta backup is that a corrupted delta file would only make one particular version of a backup file non-recoverable, while all other backups created by other delta files of the same file would still be intact.
