I have a several jobs that have been running successfully for quite some time. They use reverse incremental and have 4 restore points. I have been digging into how to improve my configurations, and discovered that I can improve deduplication by changing Storage Optimization to optimize for WAN target. Currently, the jobs are configured to use Local Target optimization.
I found the current line in the documentation:
Changes in compression and deduplication settings are not applied to the previous backup chains. The changes will take effect only when a new full backup is created.
With this in mind, how would I go about changing my jobs to optimize for WAN target with the least amount of effort? Should I just copy the data elsewhere and recreate the job?
