Launching Background Retention

Veeam Backup & Replication launches background retention every 24 hours at 00:30. If you need to free up disk space from outdated backups earlier, you can launch the background retention manually.

To launch the background retention outside its automatic schedule, do the following:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, right-click the Backups node.
  3. Select Apply retention now or click Apply Retention on the ribbon.
