This is a known limitation
This article applies to:
- All Acronis backup software
There is no possibility to create an incremental or a differential backup on CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs, regardless of whether there is a full backup on the disc or not.
This is a known limitation of Acronis backup software.
There are several reasons for this limitation:
- Acronis backup software needs to have access to the full backup to create an incremental or differential one;
- Acronis backup software needs to be able to perform automatic consolidation, which is not possible on CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs.
As a workaround, you can save the incremental or differential backups to your local hard drive and then transfer them to CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs.
(!) Dual destination backup and reserve copy backup features do not support CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs.
