I just started using site manager last week and would like to change the backup strategy I initially went with. I have a schedule that runs a weekly full on Saturday and then an incremental each of the other days of the week. I have the retention set to keeping 2 backups for the full and to run the purge before the backup.
So far, I have a full and a few incremental backups for my workstations. I would like to change it to an Incremental Forever with Synthetic Full strategy.
What I did was altered my existing schedule to mirror the template "Incrementals Forever". I set it to trigger Incremental at 7PM weekdays and to retain 5 incremental backups as well as create synthetic if possible and run purge before backup/
I manually ran the schedule through "Scheduled Activity" selecting just my PC and "Incremental" for the backup type but it didn't merge the oldest incremental with the root full. I ran it a few times to the point where I have the root full and 7 incremental backups.
Is it possible to convert backup strategies like this?
