    when backing up the System State is it better to do this via the default sub-client or is it better to do via it's own sub-client policy?

    The only reason to split it that i could think of would be to go to a different storage policy.  It doesnt make much sense to have different retention on it since its needed for full iDA restore, so backing it up with the default should be sufficient.

    It is definitely better to do this with the default subclient especially if you need to do a Full IDA restore. 

    We have had customers who have split this up because of backup windows and creating the separate subclient can allow you to run the File System and System State backups at the same time rather than having one subclient backing up everything.

    Other than that, I would recommend having the system state backed up in the default subclient with the File System.
