Scenarios when the SQL differential backups get converted to full backups


This article applies to:

  • Product edition: Phoenix


When a differential backup is triggered, the agent requests information about databases that are updated. Phoenix backs up the differential data and creates a snapshot in your storage. During the differential backup, the changed blocks (delta) from MDF & NDF files are backed up, but the entire LDF files are skipped. This document lists multiple scenarios due to which the Differential SQL backups gets converted to Full backups.
