After the initial backup of the data, any changes to the files are monitored, and only changed blocks are sent to the Metiix Cloud. If the file never changes and we stored a copy of it, we will never have to store that file again. Only incremental changes are sent after variable block de-duplication and global common file elimination.

We can continuously monitor the file system for changes and never require another full backup; only the original first copy of unique blocks of data need be captured the first day Metiix is deployed. We are able to recover files from any point in time without the need to move a full backup of the data ever again.
