Does Increasing Retention Range run a risk of losing data RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to increase a retention range on a protection group going to disk; from say 5 days to 10 days.  But I don't want any of the data lost...

    Will that work?

    Or does changing the retention; even when increasing it; cause it to remove recovery points?

  • Hi Steven,

    There is no risk in losing data when increasing the retention range, on the contrary you will actually have more backups.

    Changing the retention range will allow you to have more and older backups, the only thing you should be concerned about is disk space.

    If your disk space is not an issue then there's no problem at all!

    Also, changing the retention will never remove any recovery points.

    Best regards,
