Q backup not created due to space issue

Veeam Logoby spgsit5upport » Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:52 am

I run out of space during the Xmas period on backup server when the Quarterly backup should have been created (Copy)

I have setup: Keep the following restore points as full backups for archival purposes:
W=1
M=2
Q=3 (last Sunday of the months) - in my case last Sunday of December when the space was too low
Y=1

Once I added the space (another array of HDs) the Q backup never got created

Will Q be now created on last Sunday in January?

Hello Seb,
Do you have Read the entire restore point from source backup instead of synthesizing it from increments enabled?
What is the synchronization interval?
Thanks!

Sync is Copy every 2 days, I do NOT have Read the entire... enabled

If the option is disabled GFS transformation is started at the end of the job run and the full backup is being marked as Quarterly GFS not exactly in the scheduled day, but when the backup of that day is to be deleted by retention. Thus the quarterly backup should be re-created during to the next backup copy job run.
Did you have any job runs after you`ve resolved the space problem?
Thanks!

All the jobs run fine after the space issue was resolved. In fact I have checked today & the Q backup was created, I must have missed it...
So all good
