    One you back up on a regular basis, say daily, in addition to a main
    backup at, say, once a week. The latter you do whenever a file changes
    usually using a backup application that monitors folders.

  3. Incremental backs up and clears the Archive attribute, Differential
    backs up the file, but does not clear the attribute.
    If you take a full backup and then a serios of incrementals, to restore
    you have to restore the full, then all the incrementals in sequence, with
    differential, you only have to restore the full, then the latest
    differential, but the diffs keep growing.
