After a seamless upgrade to the .1044 release I went to perform the recommended backup from the admin console to be greeted with a message indicating that the admin console backups "cannot be used to restore a system that has lost all data."

That's fine, as far as I can tell, since I can run the backup from the shell whenever I need to do a manual backup, however do the automatic weekly full backups and incremental backups also have this limitation?
