You may have field history tracking enabled for specific objects in your Salesforce environment. Enabling this will create
history objects in Salesforce. GRAX supports backup of history objects. Let's take a look at the steps.
Note that this feature is for history objects and does NOT apply to field audit trail.
You will need to create a history-specific backup job by selecting
History as the backup type.
Note that only objects that have been enabled for history tracking will show up in the dropdown.
In general, when creating the backup job, if the date filter is left empty (i.e. you are doing a full backup of all selected history objects) the bulk API with PK Chunking will be used to back up the objects. The number of bulk batches produced will (very roughly) be the total number of parent records divided by 100,000, given that Salesforce pk chunks history objects based on the parent object.
If there is a date filter specified, the REST API may be used. If the REST API was leveraged for an object, you will see on the Summary page approximately how many API calls were used.
