Retention policy/ AutoDelete options for VeeamZIP

Veeam Logoby SaAtomic » Thu Oct 27, 2016 7:56 am

From the helpcenter post (https://helpcenter.veeam.com/backup/powershell/start-vbrzip.html) it appears that the options for the retention policy of VeeamZIP backups is quite limited.

Never
Tonight
TomorrowNight
In3days
In1Week
In2Weeks
In1Month


Is it possible to define other values, for instance
Code: Select all
In5days
?

Hi,

You can implement your own check and modify this script in order to get custom retention.

Thanks.

I think I wasn't clear enough phrasing my question.
I'm aware of the script and I'm using it, but for the option [-AutoDelete <EFreeBackupRetention>], is it possible to use other values than:

Never
Tonight
TomorrowNight
In3days
In1Week
In2Weeks
In1Month


For instance -AutoDelete in5days?

No, there are no other values that can be used except for those that you've mentioned. For custom retention settings you'll have to create your own script that applies the desired retention rule.
