Under <BackupJob> > Advanced > Backup > Active full backup > Create Active Full Backup Periodically checkbox
Backup mode is currently set to Forward Incremental with weekly Create Synthetic Full & Transform Previous to Rollbacks.
Suppose I now enable monthly active full backups.
1) What controls the periodic grooming of these active full backups off of the repository? (i.e., how do they get auto-deleted over time? / how do I control how many months worth are retained?)
2) Would these Active Full backups interact with the current chain of vib/vbk/vrb files in the job, or would the Active Fulls be "standalone" backups?
