- Tick Use incremental backup checkbox in Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Schedule
Note: It is possible to specify the period for performing the full server backups and incremental ones:
- Full backup may be performed on a Weekly, Monthly or Yearly basis. Incremental backup may be performed on Daily, Weekly or Monthly basis.
- An incremental backup feature was introduced in Plesk 12.5. Earlier versions of Plesk do not support this feature.
There is no option to create an incremental backup for configuration backups
As for required space for incremental backups, on the whole, it is needed to estimate the sufficiency of space taking into consideration the whole size of full backup and the fact that the incremental backup contains only the data that has changed since the time of the last backup.
