THe purpose is that most companies have end of quarter tasks, items, etc that need to have the ability to be restored. I know that we run certain batch jobs quarterly and the need to have a FULL quarterly backup is required.

Yes a quarterly backup would be one that occurs every 3 months. Most companies have monthly, weekly, daily and quarterly and some even yearly.

You may ed up simply using the monthly backup closest to the quarter, thus eliminating an added full backup.

I hope this helps !

well folks I dont understand the point..... what is the purpose of having a full every three months ? I mean its a snap shot 3months ago or even 6months ago not incremental or differential. I am asking this question is cos the moment I saw EMC Networker's quarterly backup schedule my idea of quarterly completely changed.....

hence my question is only a full every 3months a legit quarterly and is it best practise to only get a snapshot for quarterly (obviously there is weekly and daily schedules) ?

Maybe the purpose of the quarterly backup is to have a full backup stored offsite for each quarter for disaster recovery purposes.  I don't think it would supplant the normal daily, weekly, or monthly backups.

many financials are also quarterly, so depending on your company this backup may be needed. you need to get management involved in this decision, since it is not one purely for IT.
