Just double checking this is going to work as I think it will.
If I set a job as Reverse Incremental with a retention of 90 days.
Every 90 days I copy the entire backup folder to an external HDD and lock it up. The backup then overwrites from day 91 as per retention and after another 90 days, rinse repeat.
Does this sound feasible to retain a historic backup?
Have I missed any gotcha's?

The corresponding .vbk, as well as, .vrb-files can be copied via simple PS script. So, if I were you, I would implement something like this:Every 90 days I copy the entire backup folder to an external HDD and lock it up.
Code: Select all
$SourcePath = "Backup repository" $TargetPath = "External device" $BackupFiles = Get-ChildItem $SourcePath; Robocopy $SourcePath $TargetPath $BackupFiles;
Should any other questions arise, don’t hesitate to let us know.
