Any disadvantages of NOT using Snapshots in backup strategy

Recommended Posts


what would be some of the disadvantages of NOT using Snapshots while backing up workstations ?


During my tests of Single Server 7.6.123 proactive backups of Windows clients I noticed the following :


Pros :

if I don't use Snapshots, .RDB files do NOT increase in size, if no new/changed files are detected. If I check Snapshots, .RDB files increase in size by 300MB every backup ( in my case ), EVEN if no new/changed files are detected !!??



I cannot use Restore option when no snapshosts exist ( But i can still use Find Files or Sessions from Reports )


Any other cons ?
