Specifying Yearly Schedule

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

  1. Set the Yearly retention toggle to On and click Edit Yearly Settings.
  2. In the Yearly schedule window, specify a day, month and time when the backup policy will create backups.
  3. 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 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.
