It will reduce the system load on loading/unloadig a program
(NBackup), creating/destroing a process (CPU, memory (de)allocating)
aso. and also the FB server load (it cuts down the time and the
resources (de)allocated on logging on/off). See the Microsoft's
Robocopy documentation. Also, most probably, both NBackup and FB has
internal data structures which must be allocated in order to do the
backup which, in case of a permanent watch are only to be maintained.
In a few simplistic words, we talking here about the advantages of
connection polling, isn't it?
