We recently migrated to Veeam and setup our jobs for the first time. The retention we used was, Full Backup (Friday) and Incremental (Monday to Thursday). The job was set to 20 recovery points which would allow us to restore data within a 4 week period.
However, according to this KB https://www.veeam.com/kb2056
we should only have a maximum of 14 recovery points when using a Exagrid (which we are) and if you need to retain more than 14 recovery points, you should use Backup Copy Jobs to gain longer retention. So we changed the Backup Job from 20 to 10 recovery points with the aim of configuring a Backup Copy Job to give us the remaining 2 week coverage to get us back to 4 weeks.Below is the Backup Job settings.Below is the Backup Copy Job settings.
So my questions are:
1. Will the settings above allow us to restore data from 4 weeks ago from any day Monday to Friday? If not, what should the settings be?
2. The Backup Copy Job restore points will overlap with the Backup Job. Both the Backup Job and Backup Copy Job will allow you to restore data from 2 weeks back. Is there anyway to make it so that the Backup Copy Job only has restore points which cover 3 to 4 weeks back? I have a feeling these it's not possible because of the nature of a Backup Copy, but I thought it's worth asking.
