Forever incremental question

Post by TitaniumCoder477 »

I am reading the HelpCenter material, and I see that the backup chain "implements the forever forward incremental backup method." Does this include the weekly, monthly, and yearly points if configured? That is, are those incremental, OR are they full backups, like I am accustomed to with GFS in Backup & Replication?

The schedule is harmonised as much as possible meaning that if u use the same backup repository, we will re-use the existing chain and points. If it another repository, it’s an additional chain.

Ok, so if same repo used then harmonizing means only one full + incrementals that might end up being daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, etc. Basically, like GFS but incremental instead of multiple fulls?

Yes, we also have details on how it works in the user guide.

Yes, I read that guide. But it doesn't appear to say anything about incremental/full, hence my question. I'll post a recommendation through the HelpCenter to add some clarity to that affect. Thanks!
