PDM Timestamp Backup Ok?

We plan to backup our PDM vault every night. IT department would prefer to backup only files that have changed (timestamp changes since last backup), versus the entire vault.

I am concerned about inter-file dependencies. My gut tells me it is safer to create a new copy of the entire vault each backup.

Could the timestamp change approach potentially make the backups unstable?
