Backup cleanup question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Let's say I have a laptop WHS client that has been backed up a number of times, then I don't use the laptop for more than 3 months. With the default backup cleanup settings, will that mean that there will be no backups left on the server? That is, will the server at least ensure that there are a minimum number of backups retained, regardless of age? I interpret the settings screen as meaning there will be no backups if there have been none performed in the past "Keep the first backup of the month for the last X months".

  • I believe the server will age the backups until there are none left, unless you manually designate one or more to be kept.
