backup files not deleted retention expired

Post by M119 » Jul 03, 2017 9:18 am

Hi all,

we are backing up several servers and workstations using VAW 2.0. It generally works fine.
However, for most servers/workstations backup files are not being deleted after retention period has expired. Increments are being added over and over again regardless retention period.
Approx. half servers/workstations are physical and other half are Hyper-V servers.
We use Veeam B&R v9.5 update 2.

Does anyone has idea what to do?
Thank you in advance.

Best would be to contact support here for insight as this is unexpected behaviour. Please update the post with the support case ID for future references.
