Incremental backups - Google photos

Post by rtanger »

Hello - I'm new to SyncBack Pro - and trying to use it to download / backup photos from GOOGLE PHOTOS to an external hard disk. That seems to work in principle; however, is there a way to run such a 'profile' regularly and only backup 'whats new', i.e. download only files (photos, videos) that have been added since the profile was last run - sort of an incremental backup, without copying the entire set of image files again?

It's probably my lack of understanding of the intricacies of the different ways backups can be done - but I assume this should be possible; i.e., if SB Pro can 'only read' what's found on GOOGLE PHOTOS, that ability (to 'only read') should be sufficient to know which image files have, and which have not yet been, downloaded?

Thanks for an answer to this
