Retention rules not working
I have several clients who are using Acronis Backup advanced on their servers. I have noticed lately (for about the last year) the retention rules are not working correctly. I have backup plans that are of the "Custom" scheme with weekly base backups and daily incremental backups. The retention rules are set to delete the oldest backup volumes when the number of backups in the archive exceeds 2. This has worked for years.
At some point, after running updates on the software, this no longer works. now the archive is deleted after the 2nd incremental backup is created. leaving only one archive (with the incrementals). The settings have not changed. The plan was always to have 2 full archives, and delete the oldest one after the third archive has been created. All are currently running build 11.7.50230.
