Incremental backups throughout the day larger than the full

Hello. I have had a server being backed up at 8:30pm every night for the last few weeks. I set it up to run incremental backups every 2 hours between 6am and 6pm mon-fri through task scheduler last week. I have the command as "C:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup\Veeam.EndPoint.Manager" with an argument of "/backup". I just looked at the files, and all of the incremental backups are larger than the full taken at 8:30 the previous night, and they are .vbk files, instead of .vib. Am I doing this wrong, or is this to be expected?

Hi,

It looks like your settings are correct and backup file should be an incremental one. Kindly, open a support case and let our support team check your backup logs. Thank you.
