v7 backup copy job GFS retention

Post by wvd » Aug 15, 2013 10:58 pm 1 person likes this post

Hi,

Just figuring out how the backup copy jobs in v7 work and have following question:
If I check the GFS retention checkbox it forces me to keep at least one weekly backup. It cannot be set to 0.
I would just like to keep monthly backup points, no weekly...

Is there a reason a weekly backup has to be taken?

Tnx,

This is by design that minimal value accepted in “weekly” field is equal to “1”. Though, thanks for the feedback; much appreciated.

Can this be corrected in a future patch maybe?
It seems silly to waste space keeping weekly backups that you do not need...
