Incremental backup of Notes Database

Incremental backup of Notes Database. A mechanism or solution is required to take  Incremental backup of Notes Database. First time we should backup full back and then we should only need the take incremental backup. This will help us to get historical backup.

This way we should able to restore and state of the database for a specific date and  time .  


I am not talking about database replication.

    With Translog you can go back to any point in time but it creates a lot of translog entries for databases that change a lot.

    As I understand it he wants to do a full backup of the database and then maybe a nightly backup that contains all the changes up to that date (but no intermediate state of the DB). Like a kind of diff you can do to see the differences in two source files.

    Transaction logs are supposed to provide the incremental part. So you can configure a fullbackup e.g. at the weekend and then only take transaction log backups every couple of hours during the week. Both combined will provide the ability to restore the database by the day/hour/minute/second you like to have restored. Is this going to fix your needs ?
