I am reading into backup and restore operations in SharePoint 2010. I have noticed that in Central Administration > Backup and Restore > Granular Backup there is the possibility to backup a site collection and to export a site collection.
Powershell commands are:
Backup a site collection:
Backup-SPSite -Identity -Path [Force] [-NoSiteLock] [-UseSqlSnapshot] [-Verbose]
Export a site collection:
Export-SPWeb -Identity -Path [-ItemUrl ] [-IncludeUserSecurity] [-IncludeVersions] [-NoFileCompression] [-GradualDelete] [-Verbose]
What is the difference between performing a backup and performing an export?
Thank you in advance.
