Now synthetic full take a very long time, up to 40 hours for a 35 VM backup job.
Given that the backup jobs are made mainly for safety reason (no more than 5 single files are restored in a week for the whole of the VM managed by the job, so performance in restoring single files is not a problem) and given that a typical job keeps 8 restore points, what are the disadvantages of disabling synthetic full on Saturday?
Should we expect to take longer restoring single files?
Should we expect to take longer if we restore a complete VM?
Should we expext to use more disk space?
should we expect to spend more time during the daily backup?

I would also mention, that it is not recommended to disable periodic fulls completely.
