When you create an active full backup, the proxy appliance creates a new full backup file and adds it to the backup chain. The active full backup resets the backup chain. All subsequent incremental backups use the active full backup as a starting point. The previously used full backup will remain on the backup repository until it is removed from the backup chain according to the retention policy.
To perform active full backup, do the following:
- At the main menu, click the Backup Job node.
- Select the required backup job and click Active Full on the toolbar.
- Click Proceed to confirm the action.
