I have a directory that I am backing up that only needs the last 5 days’ worth of files kept on-line. The files that are in the directory are different names each day and stay in there for 7 days and then are purged out by the parent program that creates them. What I would like to do is create a retention policy that keeps the last five days’ worth and then the last 3 weekend copies. I created a retention policy but, it does not seem to work here is what I have created:
Time-Based on-line retention
Keep most recent generations (5)
Keep one generation every 5 day(s) for last 1 week
Keeps one generation every week on or before Sunday at 12:00:00 AM
** When I ran this it did nothing**
So not sure what else I should try – any suggestions?
