Client Copy vs Client Refresh
Sometimes these are the same, For example, if you are performing a copy to an existing client for the express purpose of updating the data, then it is called Client Refresh.
If you are copying to a newly created client then it is more appropriate to say “client copy.”
Another way of thinking about this is that a client copy from production to a QA server or from production to DEV server is really a client refresh.
Some basis differences
- Client refresh means overwriting or copying to existing client whereas Client copy means copying to the newly created client.
- Client refresh includes refreshing data of the existing target client and based on the client copy profile used for the copy process whereas client copy includes transferring client-specific data within the same instance(SID) or different instances(SID).
