Full Backup (or Reference Backup)

When you set the Backup Type setting to Full, all the files and folders on the drive are backed up every time you use that file set. To set the backup type, click Options on the Settings menu, and then click the Backup tab.

Example:
In Backup, click the drives, files, or folders to back up, and then click Next Step.
Click the destination (where you want the files backed up to).
On the Settings menu, click Options, click the Backup tab, click "Full: backup of all selected files," and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Save As and name your backup set. Once saved, click Start Backup.
Provide a name for the selected drive, files, or folders in the Backup Set Label dialog box, and then click OK.
Advantages:
All files from the selected drives and folders are backed up to one backup set.
In the event you need to restore files, they are easily restored from the single backup set.
Disadvantages:
A full backup is more time consuming than other backup options.
Full backups require more disk, tape, or network drive space.
