Hi Peter, yes, it will do so. However, there might be no need to create a separate job for such VMs, this works in your other jobs as well - if the VM is not registered in VI anymore, it's blocks will be removed (actually marked as free) from backup file after the specified number of days
. Just keep in mind that if the retention for the job itself is shorter than the deleted VMs retention, they might be deleted earlier, if full backups took place within that period. Thanks.
