Is reversed backup faster then incremental backup?

Post by RumataRus » Jan 28, 2011 2:10 pm

I noticed that the first reversed backup was completed faster then the first full Incremental backup for the same VM.
Is that always true? May be it is my particular case...

Dmitry,

No, there is no difference in running first full backup for forward and reversed incremental modes, both runs are exactly the same. I guess you've checked that out on different VMs with different destination storage, am I right?

Thank you!

Yes, you are right, I checked it out on the same VM, but with different destination storages.
The retest shows that "both runs are exactly the same". :)

That's what I've thought.
