We use it and many of our backups are between 4TB and 90TB, so a restart
at the 50TB point is a big plus for us. Checkpointing has been a good
option for us and here, it means a lot because we are backing up right
at 5PB per month. 

Thank You,

I was curious, as backups get larger and larger, how many out there are 
using checkpoint restart (yes I know it slows down the backups a bit)
it saves a lot of time having to start a 2-8TB backup again from scratch

if something goes wrong (network issue or otherwise).

Is it becoming more commonplace to use this?
