View Full Version : Retention policy with incrementals question

April 26th, 2009, 06:09 AM
Dear all,

with (logical) incremental backups, in order to restore you will need the last full and all subsequent incremental backups.

Assume I set the retention policy to, say, 2 days and make a full backup once a week and six incrementals on the other days.

Will ZRM keep the full and incremental backups long enough (a whole week) so that a restore is always possible? Or will I have to set the retention period to a sufficiently high value?

You have to set retention policy to sufficient number of days.
In case it should be at least 7 days.
