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 Create weekly schedule window, select days of the week when Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will create snapshots.
  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 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.
