If you use nsrck -L7 to merge in an older index into the current one so
you can browse back to that information, do you need to increase the
browse period for the client first? I'm thinking you don't and NetWorker
will just expand it as necessary.

Assuming such, what happens to this merged information? Does NetWorker
consider it at the bottom of the totem pole and remove it first once it
decides its time to truncate stuff, or does the browse period begin all
over again for these new entries?

Seems like if it didn't then even though the index might be locked while
you're recovering data using nwrecover tool, what would happen if you
instead waited until the next day to recover and between that time
NetWorker decides it's time to truncate. Uh oh!
