The backup have 20 restore points.
In order to save space I need to reduce che number of restore point and archive the backup.
I need to keep ate least 1 recovery point of all the VM for historical reasons.
How can I reduce the number of restore points? Can I run the backup even if the VMs do not exist anymore?
Once reduced the number of restore points can I convert the backup in VeeamZip on anything else in order to keep only one restore point of the VMs?
Is there any other way to get the results I need (keeping a copy of the VMs and saving space)?

To make it clear, you have 20 backup files, it`s not a single backup of 20 VMs. Is that correct?
If so, is that a single chain of 20 backups or several chains? What backup method was used(forward/reverse incremental)?
You can delete the whole chain via GUI or delete one or several restore points from the chain.
Yes you can, but only existing VMs will be backed up. Older backups may be deleted by retention though.marius roma wrote:Can I run the backup even if the VMs do not exist anymore?
If you want to keep VM state of the day when not full but incremental backup had been taken, you can restore the VM, make a new backup/VeeamZIP, delete the VM and old backups.
