Incremental backup on iSeries.

Backup & recovery
We save scanned images on our iSeries 720. These images can't be changed and are added to daily. We currently do a full back up daily of the folder that stores these images. To shorten our back up window can we do a back up of only the new items that have been added each day?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can use “SAVCHGOBJ” to backup only the objects changed between backups (use update history *yes). This will allow you to back up only the new files added. I would recommend that you do a complete backup and then you can get rid of the daily backups.
