Step 4. Specify Storage Settings
At the Storage step of the wizard, specify settings for the target backup repository:
- From the Backup repository list, select a backup repository where you want to store backups. You can select from the Veeam backup repositories configured on the backup server that will manage the created backup policy.
- In the Retention Policy field, specify the number of days for which you want to store backup files in the target location. By default, Veeam Backup & Replication keeps backup files for 7 days. After this period is over, Veeam Backup & Replication will remove the earliest restore points from the backup chain.
On the computer with Veeam Plug-in, make sure that the value set for the CONTROL_FILE_RECORD_KEEP_TIME parameter in the control file is greater than the recovery window. Otherwise, the retention policy will not be applicable as the backup records will be always overwritten earlier than they can be considered obsolete by the retention policy.
