Thanks, the file in question is a large outlook pst file.
I was previously just doing full daily backups with only 2 copies, but I want it at least daily, and also a higher retention period so just switched it to incremental's for daily with full on weekly. So I now have at least 2 weeks retention instead of 2 days.
But if the incremental was the same as a full backup it would take a ton of storage space. Hence the question.
I just checked the backup made this morning and it is indeed smaller, about 1/5 the size, so yes is definitely extra space used over whats changed but a saving of 80% is good enough, thanks.
