@ronneyb said in Proxmox Backup Strategy and 'Snapshot' Weirdness: The snapshot mode confused me because the term snapshot is also used to create what I will call a 'state' snapshot rather than a 'real' backup. We use the standard ProxMox backups. You don't get a powerful incremental function, but the cost (zero) offsets that compared to the cost of storage for us most of the time. It's rare that we are backing up a giant system, and full backups have their advantages. So mostly we just can overlook the lack of incrementals, just not important. If you really need them, I'd recommend a different tool. Or you can theoretically approximate them using a powerful compression and deduping location for the storage.
