Hello Expert,

Does change in segment size effect the rman backup size..??

I'm trying to understand do Rman backup the empty block from datafiles..?? And if it escape the empty block than inserting data in tables (increasing the number of used block) might change the size of total backup (Rman) size.

Please correct me.

Empty blocks for rman means blocks never used nor allocated to any object.
That is block above files HWM.
These blocks are not backed up.
