Step 6 - Retention Policy

The next step is retention policy configuration. You can indicate if you want to delete versions older than a pre-defined number of days from the modification or backup date. Similarly, you can explicitly determine the number of versions of each file that must be retained on the storage.

Separate Retention Policy for the Local and the Cloud Storage

If you're creating a Hybrid backup plan, CloudBerry Backup will allow you to configure a separate retention policy for both the local and the cloud storage. In this case the Retention Policy step of the Backup Wizard will feature a checkbox entitled Use different retention policy for local backup. Click it.

A retention policy configurator will pop up, enabling you to configure a separate retention policy for the local storage. When done, click OK.

From then on, CloudBerry Backup will apply different retention policies to both the local and the cloud storage during the plan execution.
