I have never used Incremental backup but I kind of remember reading somewhere about it as a new addition to SQL 2005 when it first came out. I never went back to dig into it as I care much less about this new backup feature as I was not going to use it anytime soon but it was somewhere in the back of my head that it is there if I happen to need it in future.

I read somewhere on online posting, long time ago that Incremental Backup backs up database since the last full backup and the last incremental backup whereas Differential Backup backs up database since the last full backup.

Nope. Sorry. Lots of people call Transaction Logs by the name Incremental, which unfortunately persists the myth. It's a bad name to call it since Incremental really does exist for other software products.

EDIT: Just a note. Transaction Logs do not behave the way you've listed Incrementals as behaving. It's similar behavior, but you need every Transaction Log up to the most current or your P.I.T. in order to properly restore the database.

Incremental just doesn't exist for SQL Server. See my SQL Misconceptions post for T-SQL Tuesday this month.

What do you want to know?

The easiest way to learn the basics is to look up Partial Backup in Books Online. But if you've already done that and have specific questions, feel free to ask.
