Question 1: Minimizing backup storage cost

Jeff wants to backup data on his machine. But he is concerned about the storage cost of the backups. He plans to do an initial full backup followed by daily incremental backups. His friend Raj argues that he should instead daily full backups and use a deduplicated storage system to store the backups. Whose solution would lead to lower storage cost of the backups?
