  • In the above screenshots we have the advanced options that gives a different write mode.
  • Append to media will give you a stand alone media file that will need to be managed with Backup Retention.
  • The Backup mode in this example is set to back up the differences with Differential Backup.
  • Finish with your settings that are appropriate for your specific Backup policy.
