Hi markham89,
so the plan is to keep monthly backups or yearly ones?
You may set weekly and quarterly retention = 0, monthly = 12, yearly = 10 to have backup of each month and yearly backups for 10 years.
Thanks!

Because there has to be a chain to leverage incremental backups.

Backup copy job fails to process generated changes within allocated sync interval. Consider increasing the interval, if you get the warning regularly. Thanks.
