 Full Backup

This is the simplest form of backup. With a full backup system, every backup generation contains every file in the backup set. However the amount of time and space such a backup takes, prevents it from being a realistic proposition for backing up a large amount of data.

When it comes to restoring data, this type of backup is the simplest to use, because a single restore session is needed for restoring all backed-up files.

RRB takes a full backup only in the very first session, and afterwards only incremental backups. 

Unlike tape backup where to restore an incremental backup the latest full has to be recovered followed by every incremental taken since, RRB restores any backup generation is a single session no matter how many generation they were taken after the first full one.
