This is a known limitation

This article applies to:

  • All Acronis backup software

Description

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.

More information

(!) Dual destination backup and reserve copy backup features do not support CD, DVD or Blu-ray discs.
