when i select the backup schedule as weekly in azure backup then the initial backup trigger as a full backup.
Ex i select 18th march 9am, then the 18th march 9am trigger full backup then next week also weekly backup will trigger. then next week date is 25th march 9am. 25th 9am triggering backup is full backup or incremental backup?

    @Abdul Basith Appreciate your patience in this matter!

    VM backups are always first full and forever incremental. This is applicable for weekly/monthly/yearly backups as well. May I know how this information is useful? For example, are you worried that Azure Backup would add up more storage or whether you’d prefer a full backup, etc?
