Sorry if this is a very basic question. I’ve searched the docs but can’t find a clear answer.
I am considering a total data loss scenario.
I already know (and tested) how to restore the data from the backup, even if the backup job settings and local DB are lost. That part works all right.
However, after the data restore operation is completed, I’d like to set up again the original backup job against the same back-end so that backup continues to work as it used to before the crash, e.g…: only the modified (“delta”) data is backed up, old backups are purged as per the retention policy, etc…
I assume if I do it the wrong way, it will “ignore” the existing backups and I will end up with a (very long) full backup, double storage usage on the back-end, and old backups never purged.
What is the right way to do restore the backup job?
(if possible, without an export of the original backup job settings)
Thanks in advance!!
