Get versions listing only last backup details RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have configured windows server backup in my DC and the target path is one on our backup server's network path, everything working fine but recently i have listed my backup details using GET VERSIONS command in DC, i wondered there was only one backup details  listed which is the last backup. no other backups are listed. when i checked the backup target path it is showing only one backup. I assumed that all my scheduled time server overwriting old backup. why it is overwriting old backup ? as there suficient space available to store other backups , please guide

  • Hi,

    If you store backups on a remote shared folder, only one version of your backup will be maintained. You can also store backups on virtual hard disks to store multiple backup versions.
