Question & Answer


Why are some backups not removed by the backup retention period?


When you set the backup retention in the backup and recovery tab, an option in Backup Recovery Configuration allows administrators to set a retention period.

The Backup Retention Period applies only to scheduled backups. On-Demand Backups are not subject to the retention period and have to be removed manually.
