What a frustrating call with Veeam support this morning (# 02278446)! The support representative told me that I could not manually remove VIBs prior to the oldest VBK, which runs contrary to my knowledge of how Veeam works.
I have a backup job with 30 restore points specified (Forward Incremental) as Retention Policy. Last month, I noticed that there were no Synthetic or Active Full Backups set for the job, so I set Active Full for the 3rd. Sunday (in this case 7/16), which occurred on schedule.
Now I have 37 VIBs from 6/7 to 7/13, a VBK on 7/16, and 26 more VIBs from 7/17 to present.
As a result of the VIBs on 7/13 and prior, the repository is running low on space.
All I want to do is remove the VIBs on 7/13 and prior, but the support representative stated flatly that that would be impossible.
Tell me if I am wrong or crazy?
