    Sounds like this does what you want: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21688752

    I'm assuming your 2nd backup is not daily as well?

    If you don't have the space, then the question is a moot point. You will need a full in you want to be able to restore those backups. So if you have daily backup you want to keep for a month (or whatever) and then monthly (or whatever) that you want to keep longer, you need to store both full backups. If space is an issue, you may want to consider deduplication if your storage is on disk.
