With just 1 weekly you will have a single weekly restore point at any time. To have 24 of them, you need to set the number of weekly restore points to keep to 24.

With 24 weeklies, yes.

Each GFS restore point is a separate full backup as of the day it was created.
andylad9 wrote:- What happens on the days when the restore point, the weekly and the monthly are all scheduled to take place/clash on the same day?
The same restore point will be marked as both weekly and monthly.
