When you stop backups for a replica set or sharded cluster Ops Manager stops taking new snapshots but retains existing snapshots until their listed expiration date.

If you later restart backups for replica set or cluster, Ops Manager might perform an inital sync, depending on how much time has elapsed.

If you terminate a backup, Ops Manager immediately deletes all the backup's snapshots.

Warning

Terminating a backup triggers a full backup

If you terminate a backup, Ops Manager immediately deletes the backup's snapshots. The next backup job runs as a full backup rather than an incremental backup.
