Retention Question

Post by BCT-Tech » Feb 18, 2017 5:34 pm

We have Veeam Endpoint set for 3 days of retention. We had about 5 days of successful backups, then had about 6 days where the backup ran but did not work (VSS issues etc.).

Does the backup now create a new full, or does it still produce an incremental?

VEB runs in forever forward incremental backup mode. Full is created once during first job run (or in case backup chain was corrupted).
