One of the choices available when backing up a Rdb database is to do an INCREMENTAL backup. This can be done with the database ONLINE or OFFLINE (See specific articles or the Rdb documentation for more details on ONLINE vs OFFLINE backups).
An INCREMENTAL Backup differs from a full backup in that the incremental backup will only backup database pages that were modified since the last full backup. In an INCREMENTAL Backup, unmodified pages are not backed up.
