We backup our branch offices to a lokal target and replicate the data with a backup copy to our headquarter. this works fine.
1. I think about configuring a periodic full 2 times a year. the replication job will replicate the full amount of data right? because it is a new full vbk file?
2. What happens if i configure a periodic compaction of the backup file. does this affect the copy job or not? (because replication works at block level, it should not replicate the whole data after compacting)?

Hello Andre, Don`t mix replication and backup copy mechanisms. Backup simply copies changes in backups, while replication job creates replica VM. 1. Do you mean backup copy job here? 2. Backup copy job should not be affected by source full backup compact. Thanks!

Thanks for clarification. Backup copy job copies only new data blocks, so even after active full backup, backup copy will create an increment in its chain. However there is Active Full Backup Copy option if you want to start a new backup copy chain.
