We have a split strategy backup solution:
Tier 1 DAS storage, is simply a 30 day Forever Forward Incremental strategy, with no scheduled/synthetic fulls.
Tier 2 DataDomain, is GFS, 7 days, 4 weeks, 24 months - which merge into fulls on the device.
We have a bit more storage now, and the possibility to reduce the frequency of some backups and increase the frequency of others.
So my question is - what's the maximum safe number of Incremental Restore Points, in a Forever Forward chain?
I'm sure the recommendation for v8 was 30, I also thought I read it had increased in v9 - but I can't find links to either.
I'd like to be able to increase the number of RPs during the day, but still keep the same number of days.
