remove the restore points

Veeam Logoby dollarsmavericks » Thu Feb 23, 2017 9:35 am

Hello Community,

we use a forward incremental backup and have 7 restore Points for each vm.
After 2 weeks the space on our disk is full and the backup Jobs failed.
How I can configure that the restore Points be removed after 1 week?

Thanks in advance

dollarsmavericks,

Moved this thread to Veeam B&R subforum.

If you are using forward incremental with periodic active full backups and have a strict limit on storage space, I’d recommend to disable periodict active full backups and use forever forward incremental backup mode. It maintains only specified number of restore points and keeps merging incremental restore points into first full backup when retention comes.
