I have searched and read articles but seem none the wiser regarding retention for veeam retention policys (it seems very confusing)
I have the following:
1) Main backup job - forever incremental 14 restore points and this works fine
2) Offsite backup job - forever incremental 3 restore points and this works fine
3) Local retention job - set as forever incremental - set to keep 12 restore monthly backups. with 20 restore points in total. This is not working as I would expect.
I am aiming to have some sort of local grandfather, father son retention policy.
I am aiming for at least a monthly backup for the last 1 or ideally 2 years.
I was under the impression veeam would merge these restore points and delete them once 20 restore points were exceeded (leaving just the monthly image).
However I currently have in excess of 25 restore points in the last month and half.
Am I missing something as to why it is not merging files. I have now run out of disk space on my retention location.
Is there anywhere I can go to view logs regarding retention?
This seems to me a fairly straight forward setup and can't identify where the issue is.
Thanks in advance for any replies
