Actually, you can do with synthetic full as well (just check all days in its schedule settings). Synthetic fulls generally complete at the same speed or even faster (depends on target storage), but they put so much less stress on the production environment comparing to the active full. Thanks!

I would also suggest a synthetic backup as well. Set one day for your full backup .vdk, and select synthetic backups on every other day if this is really how you want to have it set up. Can I ask why you don't want to use incremental backups?

thank you for this . the issue the data is 4TB and VEEAM data Storage is also 4TB. every Sunday when the veeam tries to do a full backup it always fail because of less storage. so thought daily Full back would solve the issue unless there is a different solution. thank you

Why not just run incremental/reverse incremental (no synthetic/transform) with 1 restore point? You should never overwrite/delete the current backup before the new one is finished, so it would be bad to delete the current full before the new backup starts to make room. The maximum space required would be full + single incremental.

Agree with Lars here. I'd use either forward forever incremental or reversed incremental mode with 1 or 2 restore points set as retention. But under no circumstances would I delete a base backup until a new reliable restore point gets created. Thanks.

The suggested solutions would depend entirely on how you prefer to have the backups saved/retention. Lars suggestion is on point, as this would help alleviate the issue of backups taking too much space. Also for disk space issues, I would vote reverse incremental as they take up less space.
