Backup copy job doesn't copy the entire file, it copies data blocks for VMs in the backup files and then synthesizes a new backup file in the target repository.

If you want to copy files, then file copy job should be used, but it doesn't have any retention policy settings and incremental runs. Backup copy jobs should be a preferred way and these jobs copy VM restore points in accordance to "copy every" interval configuration.
