Cleanup restore points

Post by JayFra@19080 » Sep 06, 2019 7:53 pm

Environment;
VMware/vCenter 6.5
VEEAM B&R 9.5u4
Backup jobs and Backup Copy Jobs

I have one backup job that contains 10 objects. The "Restore Points to keep on disk" is 7. I have 12 restore points and would like to cleanup the repository to be 7 as set for the job.
Of course I need to do this without interrupting the data or the offsite Backup Copy Jobs. I have read several ideas or suggestions on how to get this done (old post on other forums). but, i wanted to get a more current perspective from subject experts. Looking forward to replies.

Hi Jason and welcome the Veeam community!

Can you share which Backup Method is used for the backup job?
Please review the KB about Retention policies. Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply. I never received a notification that there was response to my post.
It looks like to has been resolved. I have been making a few changes and possibly stop and restart of job cleaned up the old data.
I have a much better understanding of how the backup and backup copy works after attending a VEEAM training sponsored by iLAND.
Thank you for reading.
