So, you have like 9 .vbk files stored on disk, right? If so, the specified retention period should have been definitely applied. Thus, I recommend contacting our support team and letting them investigate this unexpected behavior directly.

Additionally, do you have any specific reasons for specifying such untypical active/synthetic full settings? Generally, it’s advised to run synthetic once a week, not once a day.

Thanks.

Hi Eremin,
currently, i have 11 restore point (7 files +.vib, 4 files*.vbk, 1 file *.vbm) for first job, and 8 for second (5 files +.vib, 3 files*.vbk, 1 file *.vbm).
The correct "untypical active / synthetic" setting in one day (today) without positive results.. restore point is increse
Thanks

With synthetic full set for every day you should have VBK file created each day, no VIBs. So something went wrong in both cases (seems like synthetic full was not performed on some days). Worth contacting support.

How have you "corrected" your settings?

My currently configuration is :
- first job : backup every day - Retention policy = 4, synthetic fulls = Saturday
- second job : backup : M,T,W,T, F - Retention policy = 4, synthetic fulls = Friday

Thanks

Then, it means that obsolete backup data will be deleted on the next Tuesday and Wednesday (1st job - November 5th, 2nd job - November 4th), according to the specified retention policy.

Thanks.

With this setup you will have from 4 (on Tuesday) to 10 (on Monday) backup files in your repository on different days of the week.

With this setup you will have from 4 (on Wednesday) to 9 (on Thursday) backup files in your repository on different days of the week.

Retention policy is applied at the end of each backup job run and ensures that the required number of restore points exists in repository. If there are some restore points that fall out of retention and can be deleted (given they are not required to restore from the subsequent restore points), they will be removed according to retention.

Yes:

What Vladimir meant here was that the newly created (starting today) restore points will be deleted on the days specified above in his post.

As mentioned above, the newly-specified retention policy will take effect on Tuesday and Wednesday (1st job - November 5th, 2nd job - November 4th). For more understanding how retention policy works in case of forward incremental mode I recommend you reviewing corresponding section of our User Guide; might be helpful.

Thanks.

Since now everything seems to be specified correctly, the previously shown issue shouldn’t show up any longer. Thanks.

[MERGED] : Retention Period is not working

Veeam Logoby chrisBrindley » Thu Nov 21, 2013 2:44 pm

I just ran into what could be a devastating issue for our company, we are a hosting company and have contracts signed based on backup retention, we have several customer that request 28 day retention, i just looked at the jobs and it has only saved 21 days, so we have 21 restore points even though the job was setup 3 months ago, I really hope one of these customers doesn't call in and request a restore past the 21 day mark.
I then noticed we have a job that has 14 day retention set and every server has over 70 restore points.
If i setup a job and request 10, 20, 30 day retention then i want to assume thats what i get, how can the software screw this up? I have a ticket opened and await an answer why. I was wondering if anyone else see this, I am on vmware 5.1 and Veeam 7.0 R2
