I use VEB to do backups to a Veeam V&R repository, that is an EMC DataDomain System, where I can see 18 Restore Points, each one of them being an incremental backup of the first full one, that was taken nearly one month ago.
When the backup job was created and saved on my endpoint system at the first time, so when the firs full backup of the chain was taken, the retension was established as 60 days.
After that, I decided to changhe the retension value in the backup job and reduced it to 15 days, as it is today.
In my mind, I expect to see the incremental backups older than 15 days consolidate into the full first backup of the chain, and the number of the restore points be reduced by consequence, but I can't see that.
What kind of behaviour has to be seen in a case like this?
Thanks in advance for any information.
