Hi

I was wondering if there was a recommended number of incremental backups before a full backup should be done.

I can't find any documentation that specifies a limit to the number of incremental backups that ZCB can handle before a new full backup is required.

Any suggestions or best practices much appreciated.

Thanks

Jamie

There is a trade off between the number of incremental backups and the time taken
to do restoration. If you do lot of incremental backups between full backups, restoration might require all incremental backups to be downloaded.

ZCB does not have a limit in the number of incremental backups.

Thanks.
I'll assume that a full monthly and 30 or so incrementals is not out of the ordinary then.

Yes. This is normal. Please make sure you are looking at incremental backup failures.
