Backup Type: Incremental
Retention rule: Keep 4 backups
Sythetic: checkbox "Create a synthetic full if possible" is ticked
Hi forum members,
Due to logon problems (error "8007052e", see forum V6 "Scheduling, gf aug 20, 2018") I have to perform the Incrementals manually
When I had 4 Incrementals, performing the 5th the oldest incremental was deleted (hopefully merged wiith the full!?), so only 4 incrementals were left. Seemed to be according to the rule.
I expected the same behaviour the following weeks when performing furher incrementals manually.
But instead since then the previous incrementals stays in the backup chain .
Now No. 7 is reached as opposite to the retention rule "4". :-((
1. Doesn´t retention work with manual backups?
2. If not, could at least a manual Synthetic be performed?
3. If not, is deletion of the whole chain and doing a new full the only solution to not run into space problems?
Every contribution is appreciated.
