How to check if expred images are getting cleaned up

Post by rahul466 » Jul 31, 2017 11:04 pm

Hello All,

I am new to Veeam.
We have Veeam B&R v9.0 Update 2.
I would like to ran a report and like to get a list of server backups that have already passed the retention however they are still holding the space on DataDomain.

Let me know if there are some reports that we can ran to get this information.

There's no such a report, as a workaround, you can use the Protected VMs report on Veeam ONE to see whether there are more restore points in the chain than required.

Raul, what backup mode do you use?
Note that if you use incremental mode with full backups scheduled you will naturally have more restore points than defined in the settings.
Thanks!

Thanks for the response.

We have incrementals with Full backups scheduled.

So yes, that`s expected since full backup and first increments cannot be deleted until the whole chain is outdated.
Thanks!
