You should setup it to 14 if you want to keep 14 daily restore pointsin your main backup copy chain.I've created a backup copy job (Backup copy 1 as above), changed the restore points to 2
Yes, all is correct here. Please also check this article for more info about backup copy job GFS retention (the one which is used for weekly and monthly fulls).ticked "Keep the following restore points for archival purposes" then changed weekly to 4 on Saturday and the monthly to 6 on the last Saturday of the month.

Backup copy job does not simply copy the original backup to the destination but copies changes only X times a day (X is the number that you specify on the first step of backup copy job settings). If you choose to create backup once a day with 14 days retention and setup backup copy job to sync once a day with retention of 20 days then you'll have 20 restore points in the backup copy job chain. Please take a look at this article too.The main backup job is set to 14 days so the daily backups are already retained for 14 days. Why would the copy need to be set to 14? I'm confused!
Not sure if I got the question right, did you mean backup copy job? If so then you can set the interval to 2 days if you need the job to sync with its source once in two days.Also, why does the backup job run daily? "Copy every xxx "
