Specifying Daily Schedule

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

  1. Set the Daily retention toggle to On and click Edit Daily Settings.
  2. In the Daily schedule window, select hours when the backup policy will create backups.
  1. Use the Run at drop-down list to choose whether you want the backup policy to run every day, on weekdays (Monday through Friday) or on specific days.
  2. In the Daily 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 Retention Policy for Backups.

  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.
