I want to change the reversed incremental backup to forward incremental, and want to make a synthetic full on Saturday. Beside the normal backup to disk we have a copy job running to transport the backup made that day to tape. Now i'm wondering if i don't schedule a forward incremental on Saturday but only the synthetic full and i run the copy job on Saturday evening will it copy the synthetic full to tape? or can the synthetic full put directly on tape?

Virtual full backup is only created for forward forever incremental chains. If you enable synthetic full backup on source backup job, no virtual full backup will be created by a tape job, but on a given day the newly created synthetic full backup will be transferred to tapes. Thanks.
