We're currently working on an automated mechanism so our Amazon EBS volumes will be backed up on a daily basis. We know how to create snapshots but the backup but we're concerned about the size of some of them. If we have a ton of data, we'll have a significant increase in the invoice for each backup (since we will be charged on the size). But here's our question: If our backup is incremental and we're only uploading the modified data, where's our original data?
