Thanks for the update. The behavior is buggy, so once you contact a support team, please share your support case number with us.

About the BCJ problem, the solution from support was same workaround (below line).
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
From what I can see it seems a bug and as for now we have only this workaround and an example:

For backup copy with GFS (copy every 1 day) with "read entire restore point" option selected. If the time of "weekly" GFS point creation is between [0:00 - start of copy interval], the GFS point will be created twice.

[Example 1] Backup copy starts its interval at 9:00. Weekly GFS is scheduled on Friday at 8:00.

The first copy interval will be [Thursday 9:00 - Friday 9:00]. The job will consider it fitting because the time of GFS point creation is 8:00 on Friday.

The second copy interval will be [Friday 9:00 - Saturday 9:00]. The job will consider it fitting again because it covers Friday, and it will make another GFS VBK.

Solution:
Change the schedule of the weekly GFS restore point so that its time will only fit following window: [After the start of the last copy interval - 23:59]. In [Example 1], schedule it at any time between [9:01 and 23:59].

Thanks for updating Joerg, does the workaround work for you?
I`m curious because the support`s answer is pretty much same to I wrote above.

Have you got a resolution of undeleted .vibs?
