Full Backup one time per Week

Post by Nautilus »


we are replicating alls Vms to a different Datastore. We want make 1 Time Full Backup per Week to a cifs share. I configured a share, but veeam is creating
backup Files with a suffix, like vm-name-2011-03-01T145807.vbk.

Is it possible that the backup job over writes the old backup File so only 1 backup file wil be exist per vm?

Thanks for any Help

We are using v. 4.1.2 at the moment

Hello Nauti,

You should be using retention policy to manage your backup files, so in order to have 1 restore point, you should set the retention policy to 1 and that's it.
