DPM 2010 How to work Retention Period in DPM ?

    Question

  • DPM 2010 

    I select a retention period of 14 days.  It creates a replica the Week1(friday) and Week2(friday), then after that it starts creating recovery points.  On the Week3 , does it just over-write all the oldest recovery point or Week1(friday) recovery Point

  • Hi,

    once the retention period is reached (14days) then the Recovery point is deleted.
    All the ones that are more recent then 14days are kept and new ones are created in parrallel.
