    Default [SOLVED] delete inc and keep only full backups

    lets say after three weeks of regular backups, we have 3 full and 12 incremental backups

    when i delete all the inc- backups and keep the full-, what do i miss in case of restore?

    when the time-scheduled delete of backups deletes a full-backup an keeps all the inc- after, aren't they useless?

    if you delete the incremental then you can't do any restores between the fulls.

    so sa you follow the default schedule of full on friday and incremental ever other day. then if you delete the incrementals you can only restore the account to the point it was at on friday and not to a point like monday.

    yeah the incrementals are useless without the previous full. they contain some blobs which i guess could be useful but in terms of using the zimbra restore utilities yeah they're useless.
