Would it be correct that any USB disk would provide its own base (or "repository") for the next backup, thinking of Differential and Incremental ?
Thus, supposed I make a first Full Backup on USB Disk-A, next swap that with USB Disk-B and let the Grandfather - Father - Son schedule work upon that;
Would it be so that Disk-B will be provided with a Full Backup first, again ? And that the next day (Disk-A connected again) the Incremental will work relatively to the Full Backup on Disk-A and *not* relative to Disk-B ?
The same question asked differently : Is the Incremental / Differential mechanism maintained in the database, or is it taken from the Image files themselves ?
My theoretical take : It should be the latter, because how else to perform a Restore (it would require Disk-A and Disk-B at the same time).
Either way, what is your experience with the "awkwardness" of having e.g. 5 sets rotating, Macrium now not being able to help you much at showing what to take from where in case you wanted to go back to the backup "from Wednesday" ? With one disk this definitely works fine. But ...
(I did not try the rotational sets yet and merely thought to copy-through to offsite, but not sure yet ...)
Thank you for your insight,
