Learn more:

Copy-on-write is a technology that allows for point-in-time copy that only writes modified blocks of data to a backup target. This approach creates efficiency in backup by requiring the user to back up a smaller percentage of data -- because it's only writing data that has been changed since the last snapshot was taken.
