Maintenance Settings

In the maintenance settings, you can configure whether to perform a health check and after which period delete from the target HPE StoreOnce repository files deleted from the source repository. Note that the health check may lower the performance of the target repository. For details, see Health Check for Backup Files.

  1. At the Storage Mapping step of the wizard, click Advanced.
  2. To disable the health check, clear the Perform backup files health check check box. By default the health check is enabled.
  3. In the Keep secondary copies for additional field, specify after which period delete files from the target repository after they were deleted from the source repository.

The backup copy job waits the specified number of days since the backup file creation and after deletes the backup file from the target repository. If the specified number of days has already passed at the moment of deletion, the backup copy job deletes the backup file immediately.

  1. If you want to save this set of settings as the default one, click Save as default. When you create a new job, the saved settings will be offered as the default. This also applies to all users added to the backup server.


Veeam Backup & Replication does not perform the health check for encrypted and compressed backup files.
