Starting Jobs Manually
You can start a configured backup job manually. This can be necessary if you have not enabled scheduling for the backup job, or if you want to create an additional restore point for a VM backup or snapshot and don't want to change the schedule.
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.
