Hello Ananya.

There are two types of image copies:
1. A full image copy is a copy of all pages in a table space, partition, data set, or index space.
2. An incremental image copy is a copy only of pages that have been modified since the last use of the COPY utility.


MERGECOPY:
The MERGECOPY online utility merges image copies produced by the COPY utility or inline copies produced by the LOAD or REORG utilities. It can merge several incremental copies of a table space to make one incremental copy. It can also merge incremental copies with a full image copy to make a new full image copy.

Hope this helps,
