Is there a better description of these options:
Restore Points to keep on disk:
Deleted VMs retention period:
I would like some more information about how these numbers affect how many files are on disk. It looks like with a full backup and normal incrementals I can only set this to a min of :
Restore Points to keep on disk: 1
Deleted VMs retention period: 7
? - I wasn't finding any of that in the documentation?
Was looking to just keep one full vm backup, then the incrementals until the next weeks full backup on Saturday that I have scheduled.

Re: description of values, points to keep is actually described in the User Guide. You can also find plenty of existing discussion about retention policies and these parameters here on this very forum, just search for the exact names of these options as seen in UI.
Your description of desired retention policy is not very clear. How many restore points back you want to be able to restore at any given moment, is it 1 (just most recent backup) or 7 (from up to 7 days ago)? Basically, if it is 7, then you just put 7 in the number of restore points to keep. And so on.
