Lots of VRB files / restore points?

Post by jpierre » Jul 20, 2010 11:42 pm

Hi Guys,

I have a replication job for a server which replicates hourly during business hours and there is no retention on the job yet I have around 42 restore points (41 VRB files on the data store) and rising. Upon looking at the restore points I have one synthetic full and multiple rollbacks.

Is this normal behaviour? Just want to check I haven't configured anything incorrectly.

Cheers
Josh

I think having "no retention" is the equivalent of "retain forever". I believe you will want to define a retention policy to have Veeam actually remove rollbacks. If you truly want no retention of rollbacks I think you have to configure a rentention policy of "0".

Right you are. I just set it to 1 (0 automatically changed to 1) and it removed all the previous VRB files!

Thank you
