I have some archive data which changes only a bit per day.  I set the backup Method to Daily, but it only does backups of the folders, no files are backed up.  What is the best way to backup on new files created or changed?

Thanks

A differential backup contains all files that have changed since the last FULL backup. The advantage of a differential backup is that it shortens restore time compared to a full backup or an incremental backup. However, if you perform the differential backup too many times, the size of the differential backup might grow to be larger than the baseline full backup.

Use the 'help' menu to find how to define it... It is not suppose to be this comlecated.
