Feature Request: Granular Active/Synthetic Full Schedule

Hi,

Our primary backup repository is used to store 2 weeks worth of daily backups from multiple backup jobs. These jobs run Monday-Friday evenings with a 10 restore point retention (which is 2 weeks worth of backups).

We also use Backup Copy Jobs (every weekend) to a secondary backup repository for longer term storage (3 months worth of weekly backups). We also run weekly Tape Jobs to cater for our offsite backups.

Our Backup Server is physical and both primary/secondary repositories are SAS attached DAS devices which are configured as separate volumes on the backup server running Windows 2012 R2 Dedupe.

What would be nice:

- For our primary backups, to be able to schedule a 'Synthetic Full' or 'Active Full' backup once every two weeks (instead of every 'x' day of the week; or 1st, 2nd 3rd, 4th 'x' day of the month)

- A backup schedule/window for GFS Tape jobs

- More granular options for how many restore points are backed up per GFS tape job (we have a support ticket open for this issue where our GFS tape job is copying multiple restore points per job instead of only the latest full backup).

Thanks,

Dave.

Hi Dave and welcome to the community!
- For our primary backups, to be able to schedule a 'Synthetic Full' or 'Active Full' backup once every two weeks (instead of every 'x' day of the week; or 1st, 2nd 3rd, 4th 'x' day of the month)

Noted, thanks!
- A backup schedule/window for GFS Tape jobs

Taken into account as well. By the way, there is a topic with GFS scheduling discussion.
- More granular options for how many restore points are backed up per GFS tape job (we have a support ticket open for this issue where our GFS tape job is copying multiple restore points per job instead of only the latest full backup).

Could you clarify what options you are missing?
Thanks!
