 When it comes time to restore files, the opposite condition exists. The full backup has to be restored, regardless of whether incremental or differential backups are done. Then the additional restorals are applied. For incremental backup sets, EVERY backup set must be applied because the most recent incremental backup only contains 20 files. On the other hand, with a differential backup, the full backup and ONLY the MOST RECENT differential backup set must be restored. When it comes time to restore files, the opposite condition exists.

-Both the incremental and differential backups require time to perform. The key is this: do you want to spend more time each day backing up your files, but less time if you have to do a restore, or do you want to spend less time daily, but spend more time when a restore operation is needed?
