Retention in backup copy jobs

Post by marieelieg » Jan 18, 2019 12:07 pm

Hello experts,
Hope you are doing well.

I have a question regarding retention in backup copy jobs.
You see I want to be able to keep 30 restore points in my DR site using backup copy jobs. In the "Target" step of the Backup Copy job creation wizard (https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95), I cannot specify more than 7 restore points because I have StoreOnce VSA as target repository.
My question is, if I also enable "Keep the following restore points as full backups for archival purposes" check box and specify 4 for the weekly backups as seen in the same picture above, how many restore points will I actually have?
1)
Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

.vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vbk
.vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vbk
.vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vbk

OR 2)
Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun
---------------------------------------------
.vbk
.vbk

.vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vib .vbk

Hopefully my question is clear.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

The second variant is correct. Thanks!

Hi DGrinev,
Thanks for your reply.

Is there a way to have the first option with StoreOnce VSA?
