Feature Request - Save Points Options

It would be very handy for you to be able to save X restore points measured not only in days, but in backup iterations. This would allow for more flexibility and make running on-demand backups much more feasible.

I'm a user who would hook a laptop up to a USB drive (for one example) and perform a manual backup when I felt I needed one.

Once the GA is out it will have a really cool USB rotation feature, I guess that’s the one you are looking for.

I am curious, if there haven't been any backups in seven days from being powered off, and it's saving six restore days, then does it delete all of them on the next backup? I assuming that it won't do so, since endpoints aren't on and connected 24/7. It would violate the design principle of an endpoint backup program.

It will not delete based on calendar days but rather how many backups are in the chain. Here is the explanation http://helpcenter.veeam.com/endpoint/10/retention.html

If you have 6 set as the retention it will keep 6 no matter how many calendar days are in between the backup jobs.

Hope that helps!

Jax is correct. By the way, speaking of the USB rotation - each rotated device will have its own backup chain and its own retention counter :wink:
