  • Synthetic Backup from Differentials.
    Posted: 03-10-2019, 3:08 PM


    According to my schedule on Saturday at 22.00 Commvault starting Synthetic Full backup and from Monday to Friday takes one Differential at 22.00.

    I noticed that during the Synthetic Full Commvault is not using only Friday's Differential but is also requesting data from other Differential backups (ex. Thu, Mon etc..). Why is this happening; The last Differential (Friday) includes all the data that they need in order to Synthesize the backup, right;

    I am asking this question because I have to keep all the differential backups of the week on the Disk Library until the Synthetic Full is finished. As you understand, i need lot of storage for this operation and i don't have it :)

    Thank you in advance.
