Veeamzip retention not working

Hi All

a newbie here to veeam.
I am having an issue where the retention policy on the powershell script is not working correctly. I am using the script from the veeam blog as shown https://www.veeam.com/blog/veeam-backup ... shell.html

1. The retention did work correctly when I had version 9.0 installed, and has stopped working in version 9.5 from what I noticed.
2. I have set my retention as "TomorrowNight" however during the delete process it deletes the previous one and only ever keeps one copy of the zip file. I have tried to set this to In3days but I still only get one copy as the old ones are always removed.

Verison used is the free version.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The behaviour you expect is a unclear to me. Could you elaborate a bit?

The old restore points should be deleted, as soon as retention is reached: be it tomorrow night or three days from current moment. Is this not the case in your environment?

Thanks.

Hi thanks for the reply. I have solved the problem, I had a mistype in the script, which causing an issue.

I've thought that as well. Given the popularity of the script, if retention didn't work, I would have got numerous reports already. :)

Anyway, glad to hear that you're up and running now.
