Specifying Weekly Schedule

To create a weekly schedule for the backup policy, at the Schedule step of the wizard, do the following:

  1. Set the Weekly retention toggle to On and click Edit Weekly Settings.
  2. In the Weekly schedule window, select days of the week when the backup policy will create backups.
  1. Use the Create restore points at drop-down list to schedule a specific time for the backup policy to run.
  1. In the Weekly retention section, specify the number of days (or months) 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 Microsoft Azure removes the restore point from the chain. For more information, see Cosmos DB Backup Retention.

  1. In the Repository section, select a backup repository where the created backups will be stored.

For a backup repository to be displayed in the Repository list, it must be added to Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure as described in section Adding Backup Repositories.

  1. To save changes made to the backup policy settings, click Apply.
