The integrity check simply checks on the backup data to know if the related backup task can proceed and if the backup data can be successfully restored. No data is actually transferred during the Integrity Check.

Note: It’s almost mandatory to check backup integrity, at least from time to time, to make sure your backups are processed correctly before they are restored. Task Settings allows you to enable a Check backup integrity schedule.
