I see that we both see the problem with the wording. For your information, I had pointed this out last year.

If the menu option, Keep restore points for the last (8) days when the computer was used is not a problem, the question would not have been asked.
If the option stated Keep restore points for the last 8 backups, or last 8 weeks or ....., leaving out "when the computer was last used". The computer last used statement is the part that causes confusion. I'm sure that the computer was used each day, but not backed up each day, only on a Sunday.
A nice easy to use and setup backup program like Veeam Endpoint should have an easy to understand menu that doesn't require a manual in order to use it.
Just because it's in the users guide doesn't mean that is the way it should be.
That's the way I see it. Thanks.
