We are using Endpoint since the beginning half may 2015, the job is running every 6 days and the option "backups to retain" Keeps restore points for the last "xx" days when computer was used is set to "30". Since the 13 may 2015 i have now one .vbk file and 20 .vib files, i don't want to keep so much files, there's somethng i don't understand quiet well...do i need to read this option as "30" retention points ?

I've already read that, in Veeam & Backup replication console it's written: "restore points to keep on disk", does the Endpoint option "the option "backups to retain" Keeps restore points for the last "xx" days when computer was used is set to "30" means the same things ?

Indeed, in classic, VBR approach retention is set in the restore points and here you set retention is days of successful backups: having more than one restore point per day still be counted as one day of backup. To ensure you have one scheduled backup per day adjust the schedule to create backup no more often that 24 hours.
If you run backup every six days that should be counted as one day of successful backup in the retention.
