Veeam Backup Copy Job is only keeping weekly backups

Post by jhumpf » Oct 15, 2019 1:58 pm

Hello,

I have a backup retention job on 2 different Veeam servers, and neither of them are keeping monthly, quarterly, or yearly backups.
Backups have been going since June and they both are only retaining the 4 weekly backups. I see a backup that is labeled WMQ but I know it will be erased in 2 weeks like all the others. Why is this?

Hi John,

What are your retention settings for these jobs?

Thanks!

It won't, since it's marked as weekly, monthly and quarterly backup - it will stay for at least 3-6 months. Thanks!
