I meant to say that FastClone increases the speed of synthetic backup creation and all other operations that involve transformation of backup files: merge, compact, reverse backup transformation. For backup copy jobs it also works for GFS restore points creation. Sorry for ambiguity.

1- Yes, the first and the only full in your backup chain. If you have periodic full backup option set then you don't need compact operation. 2- With a standard forever-forward (i.e. no periodic fulls) backup mode the backup files get merged to keep the backup chain from growing forever.
