Active Full Backup

Post by handian.sudianto »

Hello,

If we have job and running daily, can we make every daily the backup is full and not incremental?

Hello Handian

You can. But could you share your use case?
Why do you need daily active fulls? This will take a lot of space.

You're welcome.
There is also the possibility to run manual active fulls, if you cannot wait for the next day for your test.

Hi Fabian,

if we set active full backup daily and create synthetic full backup every Saturday so what will happen on Saturday?
Should we disable create synthetic full backup if active full backup set to daily?

If active full and synthetic fulls are scheduled for the same day, an Active Full backup will be created. The synthetic full backup will be skipped.
