Space management backup scheme

I'd like a little clarification of the Space Management Backup Scheme.  Am I correct in saying that space management functionality only comes into play when disk space is insufficient to perform the backup?

Secondly, is a differential backup the only backup type that will work with the Space Management Backup Scheme?


  • If you enable the Backup Scheme, you could avoid disk space shortage. We have Full Backup Scheme, Incremental Backup Scheme, Differential Backup Scheme, Space Management Scheme and Other Backup Scheme.

  • Yes, I understand.  I've switched to incremental disk backups for two of my physical drives  and just want to be sure that the incremental type fits my needs.  However, I don't understand why it makes two full backups prior to doing incremental backups.  Is it advisable to delete the first of the two full backups?

  • Did you tick the option "Make a full backup before performing backup scheme"?
