If somebody comes back to me and says I deleted an email around 8 months ago and just realised I need to refer to it again (bee here a few times), I can refer to the repository on tape. Part of the reason for this is as it stands we have limited storage and I don't see anyway of stopping the repository from filling up with out manually deleting it and starting again. There is also no way to remove 'point-in-time' states manually. I can see this been inconvenient to quite a few organisations that have limited storage.
Hope this makes sense.

The solution also works a bit different. The retention is not the same as with VBR. In VBR, when you take a backup, it contains a "snapshot" of the moment. With VBO, we only backup items that are within the retention range. So for example, when the retention is 2 years, every item in someone's mailbox that is younger than 2 years will be protected. Everything which is older (so imagine a received email 3 years ago) won't be in the backup as the item is older than 2 years.
So it cleans out the repository itself. So if you are going to choose days, then there won't be a lot of data in the backup.
Last but not least, it is possible to change the interval to days if you really want to. https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/vbo36 ... tml?ver=15
You can select a specific # of days (bottom option in the dropdown list)
