I am totally new at backing up my data files and other files I want to keep. What I am trying to determine is after I set up my back up as a mirror type:
a. Will it make a full backup of the folders I have selected?

b. On subsequent backups will it backup ONLY those files that are new or have been modified since the initial backup?

c. Will the free copy do this or do I have to download the professional copy

d. Will subsequent backups overwrite the original files or try to save the full backup plus the new or modified files?

If you selected the Full backup type, all files will be backed up each time. If you use the Mirror backup type, only new and modified files will be backed up.
If you want to create zip archives with only new and modified files each time you run the backup, you need to use the Incremental backup type.

That feature is not available in FBackup but only in our commercial edition: Backup4all

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
