C.3 Sample Directory Structure for Incremental Backup

An incremental backup produces a directory structure containing a subset of the files from a full backup. All non-InnoDB files such as *.frm *.MYD, and so on are included. *.ibd files are included only if they changed since the full backup, that is, if their maximum logical sequence number is higher than the value specified by the --start-lsn option.
