Specifying Yearly Schedule
[This step applies only if you have instructed Veeam Backup for AWS to create image-level backups at the Targets step of the wizard]
To create a yearly schedule for the backup policy, at the Schedule step of the wizard, do the following:
- Set the Yearly retention toggle to On and click Edit yearly settings.
- In the Yearly schedule window, specify a day, month and time when the backup policy must create image-level backups.
For example, if you select First, Friday, January and 06:00 PM, the backup policy will run every first Friday of January at 06:00 PM.
- In the Keep backups for field, specify the number of years for which you want to keep restore points in a backup chain.
If a restore point is older than the specified time limit, Veeam Backup for AWS removes the restore from the chain. For more information, see Retention Policy for Backups.
- To save changes made to the backup policy settings, click Apply.
