I am just trying to figure out how the "backup copy" works. Currently, we've got Veeam backing up nightly going back 14 days. I want a few VMs to have backups that go back to go back 6 months.
So I setup a new copy job, selected the source VMs etc - everything is all set now and the replication is running.
I just have a question - how much space is each "point in time" supposed to use? So based on the config above, I am expecting to have 7 x backups (taken sunday of every week), plus 6 x backups (taken on the first sunday of the month).
Is each single file a "full" backup, or is it an incremental system (so as to save disk space)?

The "Restore points to keep" chain is a Forever Forward Incremental chain. So 1 Full + x Increments.
The GFS chain (Weekly/Monthly/Quarterly/Yearly) restore points will be full backup files to not depend on such a long time.
You can play with the numbers here:
