Retention Policies failing

Thread needs solution

Good morning,

I have a client that is utilizing Backup & Recovery 11 (build 11.0.17440) on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  They have removable media attached via USB for the backup storage.  The backups can store one day of backups and they rotate 5 days of media.  The retention policy is set to:

Clean up archive: Using retention rules

Retention Rules: Backups older than 1 Day, Delete the oldest backup

Apply retention rules: Before backup

When the drive is rotated and the backupp is 5 days old, the retention policy should delete the older backups and then run the backup job.  This is not happening.

Hello Deanna,

Could you clarify what is happening instead? Do you get an error? Does the task run without doing anything?

Thank you!
