This would allow the application to alert when there is not enough space for the minimum restore points (probably how the application works today), but allow for inclusion of additional optional restore points instead of wasting space on a dedicated backup disk.
I have to guess how many restore points the destination can handle.

Purge starting with the the oldest restore point.
If I set 14 restore points in the current release and I need something from the 15th restore point, I'm out of luck.
Dima P. wrote:In Veeam Endpoint Backup we count days when the backup was produced. Eventually, setting the 14 days retention does not mean you will end up with 14 restore points - daily schedule can be combined with any backup trigger and you can create more than one restore point per day.
How is this any different from how VEB works now? If I set 14 [days] in the current release and I need something from the 15th [day], I'm out of luck.
If you were to add Min/Max, then I could set min to 14 [days] and max to 120 [days]. This would allow me to better utilize storage while maintaining a minimum amount of protection.

I just noticed the user was talking about VEB ... but would be nice if B&R could do this too!
(Hit: It's the yellow one! But you could not even see the yellow one if 7 subsequent ones had failed because there is no way to scroll or enlarge the window)
And without knowing the program, you would think that the top line of text "Recovery media has not been created and 1 other warning" would be important. Actually, it is not. Even if you click "Details" you will not even be shown that several backup attempts (the red ones) have failed! Instead the stupid recovery media message is shown as if that were important...
As explained in the forums this does not keep the last days but the last number of backups.
then 15 incrementals and limit disk space to 150GB
There is NO notification bubble in the tray. There is nothing in the Windows 10 message center about the problem. There is no popup on the desktop as the backup fails.
The current way with the color bars is not horrible, but not great either.
