The incremental forever backup is to back up the new data only in each backup process, and the incremental data index is combined with the index of the previous copy to generate a new full copy after the backup is completed.

§    A full copy is generated after a successful incremental forever backup. During incremental forever backup, AnyBackup records the offset and length of each incremental data block and integrates it with the previous backup record to form data index information for the entire virtual disk. When the VMs need to be restored, it only needs to retrieve the complete data from the index information, without having to restore the previous backup copy in turn.
