We have a Linux client with File System Agent installed. The defaultBackupSet have 5 Subclients. All of them disabled for a long time. One of those Subclients have 60 Incremental Backup Jobs without a base Full Backup. There is no Full Backup. I double-checked the backup history (Backup Type: All / Job Status: All / Time Range unchecked / All operations).

Do they have any use?

Would it be possible to restore some data from those jobs even without a Full backup?

Hi @Eduardo Braga, even though you only have the incremental jobs, you can still restore just the files backed up from these. Easiest way would be to Restore By Job to see which files are in each Incremental job.

This is only applicable to File System agents (like Windows and Linux). 

 

Thanks
