This paper addresses the problem of costs between two sequential Backups, identifies the main reasons that create costs and the facts that influence these costs. For the problem used in this scenario are used two sequential backups Ti and Ti+1, where Ti and Ti+1 are created with a standard method of "Incremental Backup". In the second part, there are proposed solutions to reduce the costs, it is presented the impact of reduction of the costs and it is proposed a formula based on system configuration and the size of the file.
