are 80 files and not 50 files.

Should the number of backup files match the recovery points?
Why aren't old restore points cleared?
Is there any way to manually delete old restore points?
I also tried to set the number of restore points to 10 and back up, but it fails because it does not have enough space available in the destination and does not eliminate the old restore points.

The server is Ubuntu 18.04 and I upgrade backup agent to the last version:

Code: Select all

# veeamconfig --version
v4.0.0.1961
Is there a solution?
Thanks so much,
Lorenzo

Re: Pld restore points not deleted

Hi Lorenzo,

The Agent won't just delete the oldest files and always keep 50 files: if we delete Active full from 2020-03-09, all corresponding incrementals will be useless.
Instead, the Agent will wait until you have 50 restore points after your latest full backup and remove the old ones after that.
So, the actual number of backup files on the disk will be greater than 50 for some time.
Retention policy gives you a time gap to decide if you still need the old backup data from the previous month or not.

So if you currently have troubles with space, you can try to remove the old files (everything before the latest Full backup).
If Backup job fails after such deletion, you can run the new Active Full backup or contact our Support to fix metadata.

Thanks!

Hi Natalia,
thanks for the quick reply.
I read the documentation and I understand the retention policy.
I delete all the file before the newest full backup (2020-05-23) and I launched a backup that ended successfully and ran in incremental mode.
Thanks!
