Full Backup - Definition

A Full Backup, as it refers to Tape Backup systems, copies all selected files and marks each file as having been backed up. Full Backups allow you to restore files quickly because files on the last tape are the most current. Advantages of performing a full backup include the fact that files are easy to find as they are always on a current backup of a system or on one tape or tape set. In addition, recovery requires only one tape or tape set. However, a full backup is the most time consuming. If files do not change frequently, then full backups are redundant. Full backups also require a large amount of tape space.
