Specifying Monthly Schedule

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

  1. Set the Monthly retention toggle to On and click Edit Monthly Settings.
  2. In the Create monthly schedule window, select months when the backup policy will create snapshots.
  3. Use the Create restore points at and Run on drop-down lists to schedule a specific time and day for the backup policy to run.
  4. In the Monthly retention section, specify the number of restore points that you want to keep in a snapshot chain.

If the restore point limit is exceeded, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure removes the earliest restore point from the chain. For more information, see Retention Policy for Snapshots.

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