Hello,

What benefit does it have to increase the restoration points?

Thank you

This will allow you to go further back in time for restoring files.

It has nothing to do with the fact that it takes less time to make the copy on large discs? thanks!!

No, it will only grow you recovery point options. The speed is not affected by this. Speed can be affected by multiple factors such as disk/raid speed of the backup target, how busy is the backup target, load on the production server, network limit,...

One doubt, I just made a copy, if tomorrow I want to make, there are incremental copies? that is, make a copy of only what is new? thanks

First backup is a full backup and afterwards it will always be incremental backups for the job.

Thanks for answering, but if I do it manually, if I now release a backup, it will be incremental? Is there any way to know?

If you already run the job once it will be an incrementall (scheduled or manual).

If you run the job for the first time it will be a full (scheduled or manual).

And can you see in some log that is incremental? I guess that because of the size will be enough but out of curiosity

You can see it from the console. It will state: Starting incremental backup or Starting full backup.
