I have some difficulties to understand how the Retention rules are working - "by backup age".

e.g.: by backup age, month 6, weeks 4 - what does this mean.


Many thanks for your help in advance

"by backup age" means how long to keep backups created by the backup plan. Product after the backup checks the creation date of the backups and delete backups which creation date is older than specified value.

By default, By default, the retention rules are specified for each backup set separately.

You can read this in the documentation.
