I installed today and its really simple to use, very nice, BUT there is - for my understanding - a logic mistake within the Diff backups.
A Diff backup usually means:
Full backup 12:00 - 100 MB
Diff 12:15 - 10 MB (the increase from the last 15 Mins)
Diff 12:30 - 3 MB (the increase from the last full, including the last diff).
Diff 12:45 - 20 MB (the full, all diffs and the change now)
But with SQLBAckupandFTP
12:30 - 13 MB (full + all)
12:45 - 33 MB (full +all)
I want to keep backups for few days, but with this method and just few GB DB, the space need is enormous.
I backup on: hd, cloud network AND ftp - how can i handle this massive space - as diff. backup is working in this case a bit…different?
