Re: Avamar backup retention question

I don’t set mine by Yearly, Monthly Weekly or Daily

I just do daily’s

but a yearly backup is the first backup of the year

Monthly (I think) is the first of the month

Weekly the first of the week

Daily – duh…

so you can say keep yearly’s for 7 years (well that is only 7 backups)

if you go to Backup and Restore and Cjoose the Manage tab

them retrieve for more than one your

you can see the Retention Tags

All of mine have D some have DW DM or even DWMY

read the manual about retention settings it explains it really good.

you might night have room for 6 months of daily backup

so you might keep Monthly for 6 , Weekly for 90 and daily for 60
