About restore point and backup copy issues [Case 03092002]

[Case no. - 03092002]

Hi,

I have 2 questions about Veeam

1) For retention policy, I have configured "7 restore points to keep on disk". But I found over 7 restore points on backups disk. Any problems ?

2) For backup copy, I found only 1 full backup and following with incremental. How to configure to have weekly FULL backup copy after weekly backup (Full) ?

Thanks

For 2nd question, what's the best practice ?

I want FULL backup copy (WeekEnd - Sunday) and INCREMENTAL copy for (Weekdays, Mon - Sat).

Thanks

Most likely, there is either active or synthetic full scheduled. So, at any given moment of time you have between 7 and 13 restore points on disk.

2) For backup copy, I found only 1 full backup and following with incremental. How to configure to have weekly FULL backup copy after weekly backup (Full) ?

Enable GFS retention scheme, plus, "read entire restore point from source repository" option.
