    Description

      Imagine I have a set of backups (Full1, Incr2, Incr3), delete the last backup (Incr3), and then create a new incremental backup (Incr4).

      This backup history will now show: Full1, Incr2, Incr4.

      However, restoring Incr4 will not contain the data that was captured in Incr3, effectively leading to data loss. This will certainly surprise some users.

      I suggest to add some internal bookkeeping to prevent incremental backups in case the most recent backup was deleted.
