Hi Krystian, please review this user guide section for instructions on how to configure GFS retention in backup copy job. In your case, you would need to set 7 for the number of restore points to keep (regular daily chain), 5 for weekly and 4 for monthly restore points. Thanks!

Thanks, so only by "backup copy" I can do this? In this weeks, months copy, I have a full copy? I have other problem in my normal jobs, I have point of restore for example 14 days but in Backups>Disks on this job I have for example 50 restore points, Veeam didn't delete old restore points. What I can do with this?

In the current version, GFS retention is available in backup copy jobs only. The upcoming v10 will add GFS to regular jobs as well.

As for your second question, please review this KB article describing how retention works for forward incremental mode - most likely this will address your concerns.

Correct, GFS restore points are independent full backup files.
