We're working on a few retention options to put to the business here and one of them would be 1-2 years of dailys on disk (520 restore points). Are there any issues with this assuming you have an adequate spacing of full backups?
I see there appears to be a limit of 999 restore points, is there a reason for that? If I wanted to keep 1820 (7 years of dailys) on disk, is there any reason why this wouldn't work?
Second question is - I know tape backups is coming for Veeam, is there anywhere you can get information on what this will involve? do Veeam do upcoming feature disclosures with NDA?

Just out of curiosity – for what purpose you’re willing to preserve such a big amount of daily backups?If I wanted to keep 1820 (7 years of dailys) on disk, is there any reason why this wouldn't work?
Right now 999 seems to be the hardcoded limit, however, as a workaround, you can copy the oldest restore points to additional drive and let retention policy delete them from the primary storage. As long as you have the whole backup chain intact, you’ll be able to restore from whatever point you want.
These features are likely to be disclosed within Veeam Countdown program and closer to the release, as well.

Hope this helps.
