Currently the jobs have been running longer than usual. I am suspecting a few variables (the synthetic full portion runs long & the jobs write to a cloud storage AWS) that might be the cause. I have two questions.
1) If I change the backup repository on the current job to a local drive (new location), would the job run a full backup on the next run or would it know its the "incremental" job based on the current old settings?
2) Also, If I plan to rearrange all my backup to the local computer drive and have a script to copy its content to cloud storage, would I need a full backup file, all the incrementals, and the chain metadata file for a restore?
Current version is 8
