I have some questions that could use some clarification.
I read that if you delete an incremental partition you would have to delete the entire chain and start over. I am curious:
Lets say a computer has a 7 day backup chain with Veeam Endpoint Backup. A virus hops on board the PC and it isn't detected for 2 days. Would it be saved in those two incremental files?
Also, lets say we can't clean the virus and have to do a full restore. I choose to restore the computer from 4 days ago before the virus infected the PC. Once the restore is complete, could I manually delete the incremental files after that point and continue to use the same backup chain? Or do I have to delete everything and create a new full backup + incremental because I deleted the compromised incremental files?
If it's unclear, let me know.
