In AOMEI MBackupper, it manages all backups of a device by Versions. Each time a backup is performed, a new backup version will be generated.
When a backup is done, you can backup newly added data by clicking on the "Backup" button (triangle icon), which is more convenient than creating a backup manually.
If you choose one backup version in the list and click the "Backup" button on the backup version, AOMEI MBackupper will compare the data in your device with this backup version you selected and filter the parts that have been backed up to create an incremental backup.
If you click the "Backup" button on the whole task, AOMEI MBackupper will run an incremental backup based on the latest backup version in the list.
You can cancel a backup by clicking the "Cancel" button when a backup is running. After canceling the backup, there will be an invalid backup version in the list, you could manually delete it.
There are two ways to browse a backup: browse the data corresponding to a backup version and browse all the backup data.
