Bob is performing regular backups of a system and is asked by his boss to create an emergency backup. Which one of the following backup types will consume the most disk space?
A. Differential backup
B. Full backup
C. Incremental backup
D. Transaction log backup
Correct Answer: B
Full backups always include all data stored on the backed up media and, therefore, are always at least as large as any other backup type. This system is being regularly backed up, so other backup types will be smaller than a full backup.
