Re: fbackup :: Incremental Backup

in order to set up incremental backups:

1. Create a full backup with -u0 option
2. Ensure a database of the date of the backup has been created
2. Create your incremental backup using the -u1 and specify the database path.

See man fbackup

Re: fbackup :: Incremental Backup

Hi mehul,

What is this 8Gb limitation??

I'm using:

#tar cv -- for the first I use the tape
#tar uv -- to add

Best Regards,
