So I am working with a customer who wants to have hourly backups of a specific Accounting FileShare. We are backing up data to an HP StoreOnce device. When creating the backup I get a warning that you can't have more than 7 restore points without a Full Backup. So, what I have done at this point is create 4 separate backups that cover 4 6 hour windows that run hourly. The idea being that the first backup of each time period would be full backup.
However, the only option I can check off is to do a daily full is a Synthetic Full. The normal full only has options for Monthly or Weekly. If I remember correctly when I first setup the StoreOnce the Synthetic Fulls would not work because because I was backing up to the StoreOnce and I had to do normal full backups. I will know for sure if that is an issue when the second run of these jobs will start taking place at Noon today.
Is there a better strategy for doing this or ideally some way to just put this in a single job and Veeam would just grab a Full backups when the requirements of the StoreOnce dictated it?
I have support case 01991962 opened and got a response back stating you could not schedule more than one full a day outside of a script. I saw other questions posted regarding hourly backups but I think my situation may be a little unique because the StoreOnce is there. Would just like to know if anyone in the community might have a better strategy at tackling this. Also, once this is in production I am concerned that the Full will not complete in the 1 hour window that it has.
