If a concern is around the data integrity for any particular data set, synthetic full on weekly or so basis is the option you're looking to get use of. Every next increment will be based on the new full, until the next one is created, in turn, narrowing down the failure domain. The benefit would be not to take the copy of Full backup on daily basis, but rather do so on the times Synthetic or Active Full are created, saving space and lowering the needs for backup window(s).
Shestakov wrote:GFS restore points are all full backups. Synthetic full on the disk doesn`t change the tape fulls so you will have all weekly backups of December in January if you set a proper retention.
By the way, I would suggest to use Surebackup for recoverability checks.
