I'm new to Veeam, and also to setting up back up jobs in general. I think we need to change our set up (someone else initially configured it), but I'm not sure how to go about that.
We currently have a synthetic full running every day, and it's set to back up every 4 hour. The retention policy is set to 56 restore points. We run are running out of storage REALLY fast, and currently the backups are not able to run anymore.
I've set up two backup jobs to replace the old two. They each are set to keep 10 restore points, and they're set to full backup Sundays, and synth. full on Thursdays. What I'm unsure of is if a retention policy of 10 is enough to have the incremental backups running every 4 hours in the new jobs too.
If any more info is needed I'm happy to supply, just let me know.
Thanks in advance,
