The answer is that the increase is not noticeable, but there are bugs with respect to "duplicate database" which can prevent you from successfully duplicating the database for development. I find backup with de-duplication technology, like Commvault Simpana, far preferable to incremental backups.
And yes, I do work for Commvault Systems.
