Hi pani 200g databases that create 50g of redo a day are good candidates for incremental backups. Well actually on modern hardware i'm probably an order of magnitude out.

The incremental backup topic raises an interesting question for me. I am yet to appreciate
the usefulness of incremental backups. I always use a periodic(daily or weekly) fullback and rely
on archived logs for any restores. If you use incremental backups, do you use them just for large
databases? I am curious to see how prevalent is the incremental in everyone's backup strategy.
