SSR2011 - Maximum number of incrementals?

Hi Guys,

I have a server that is backed-up using th edefault schedule, i.e. new recovery point base once a month + daily incrementals at midnight.

I want to add another daily incremental at mid day, but that will bring the total number of incrementals per base to ~61.

will this work? Is there a recomended incrementals/base ratio?

Yes, this will work.

The only recommendation that we make is to ensure you do base backups as often as you can. The more incrementals you have, the more likely that corruption will 'break' the chain (i.e. one bad incremental will mean you can only restore that set from the last 'good' incremental and earlier).

Hope that helps.
