    Hey there! Traditional MySQL databases in general, are not backed up well in an incremental fashion, and JetBackup is no exception to this. From their documentation here, they state that they are still dumped in entirety:

    Correct - cPanel's backup is also based on mysqldumpts. In newest version of JetBackup 5.3 they have included new "semi-incremental" MySQL backup feature which compares tables and does only backup of changes tables. I don't have much experience with it though... For customers who NEEDED incremental backup, we have developed a backup script to utilize mariabackup, which only supports MariaDB, but does support incremental backups and then using cPanel backup or JetBackup to backup the incremental backups from mariabackup.
