Looking good, you've got an errant backslash:

'Let’s assume the full backup is named full\_backup.img.'

I also think we should change

"Let’s assume it is named incremental.0.img."


"Let's assume the new incremental image is named incremental.0.img"

so as to avoid "it" when dealing with two images.

Otherwise, LGTM.
