Monthly Backup Job

Post by fquinnAPT »

Hi Guys,

I have a customer with a monthly backup job that runs on the last day of each month

Looking at this I can see that the repository does not have enough room for this months backup job that will run on the 31st January.

If i delete an incremental the job will fail right?

The job is a reverse incremental. What options do I have to get this job to work?

Each vrb is 180GB and there is only roughly 90GB left free on the partition

Fintan, in case of reverse incremental chain, you can remove the oldest incremental file manually, if required. The job will not fail, however the corresponding restore point will still be displayed in the Veeam B&R UI and then removed, when retention comes.
