Backup Conversion Rules

Automatic backup schedules are created based on the selections while creating a server plan. Additionally, some of the backup schedules are converted into full backup schedules based on certain rules. The automatic backup schedules and the backup conversion rules that enable conversion from incremental backup to a full backup are listed in these tables.
