I would love to know how to make 1 full backup on every external drive and thats it. I already have a case with support. They did add a powershell script. It will run automatically every day through task scheduler. It will perform a full backup.
I just checked and I have more then 1 full backup right now on my external disk. That is not what I want. I want 1 backup only. It should start and remove the older full backup and makes a new full backup.
I am using 5 external disks. Every day another external disk.
Maybe someone can let me know if there is any other trick that suits my needs with VEEAM? I am not a fan with powershell and task scheduler. Would love to have this configured through VEAAM software itself.

Without PowerShell - I'd suggest the following:
-Define the USB Drive as a rotating media
-Set the backup job to keep 2 restore points (BTW - it will never happen - it will only have full backup ->> Unless you forget to remove the disk)
-Schedule it for daily backup time
-Configure the backup job as reverse incremental (I think that will work with rotating drives, but this makes the backup a full backup last run)
As you remove the USB and replace with another, it will start the next day with a need for a full backup as the previous restore point is gone.
