Hi there I am testing Veeam Agent for Windows, with a backup retention of the previous 14 days, however older files are not deleted.
See the attached image:

Hi Dolphin,

It's expected behavior, you should wait one more day for retention to be applied.
The retention policy in Free and Workstation editions is counting RPs without the one you have today. Thanks!

The incremental from 08/03 requires the full backup from 07/03 if you need to perform a restore. As Dmitry states, tomorrow the retention should be applied.
