    Which of the following backup job types does not reset the archive bits on the files that it copies to the backup medium? (Choose all correct answers.)

    • A.

      Full

    • B.

      Incremental

    • C.

      Differential

    • D.

      Copy

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. Differential
    D. Copy
    Explanation
    Differential and Copy are the backup job types that do not reset the archive bits on the files they copy to the backup medium. In a differential backup, only the files that have changed since the last full backup are copied, while the archive bits remain unchanged. Similarly, in a copy backup, files are copied to the backup medium without altering the archive bits. On the other hand, a full backup resets the archive bits on all the files it copies, and an incremental backup only copies the files that have changed since the last backup, resetting the archive bits in the process.

    You are designing a backup solution for your company network. To make it easier to back up valuable company data, you have supplied each of the network’s 125 users with a home folder on a shared server drive and have instructed the users to store all their data files in their home folder. You have also created disk quotas granting each user a maximum of 1 GB of storage space.Because of this arrangement, you will be backing up only the network servers, not user workstations. In addition to the file servers hosting the users’ home folders, there are also six Web servers, each with a 40-GB drive containing the home page files, a database server with an 80-GB drive hosting approximately 10 GB of database files, and an e-mail server with 25 GB of mail archives.What is the approximate total amount of regularly changing data that you might have to back up each day?

    • A.

      60 GB

    • B.

      160 GB

    • C.

      360 GB

    • D.

      480 GB

    Correct Answer
    B. 160 GB
    Explanation
    The approximate total amount of regularly changing data that needs to be backed up each day is 160 GB. This includes the 125 users' home folders on the shared server drive, which have a maximum storage space of 1 GB each. Additionally, there are six Web servers with a 40-GB drive each, a database server with an 80-GB drive, and an e-mail server with 25 GB of mail archives. Therefore, the total comes out to be 125 GB (users' home folders) + 240 GB (Web servers) + 80 GB (database server) + 25 GB (e-mail server) = 470 GB. However, since not all of this data is changing regularly, the approximate amount to be backed up each day is 160 GB.
